Employing People – Sourcing Labour Farming Note

Labour should be thought of as an investment, not just a cost. At an average 5.7ppl (3.7ppl paid labour) (Kingshay Profit Manager), labour is the biggest overhead cost to the dairy herd. It is crucial that you recruit the best staff with the right skills, attitude and personality to fit your farm team. The question is, how do you find these valuable workers?

This Farming Note looks at:

  • Deciding what to look for
  • Labour options
  • Hiring apprentices
  • Advertising and headhunting
