Dairy Farm Jobs in New Zealand

October 28th, 2007 · 83 Comments

For many young people in Europe one of the best ways to see New Zealand and get paid for doing it is by taking one of the many Dairy Farm Jobs that are available in New Zealand.

There are certain periods of the year in New Zealand where there is very high demand for Dairy Farm workers, they generally work on a 1st June until 31st May calendar period, and the focus is on a season’s activity.

The sharemilking system is very unique to New Zealand. Around 40% of NZ dairy farms operate with the sharemilking structure which we discuss below.

Variable Order Sharemilkers
This is where the sharemilker contributes a percentage of the costs and in return is paid a percentage of the income.

50% Sharemilkers
This is where the sharemilker owns most or all of the cows and the the ensueing profits are split with the dairy farm’s owner. This meanse that the sharemilker can start from a modest investment and build up assets over time.

One thing is certain whatever the structure there are plenty of dairy farm jobs for willing and experienced workers. You can take a look at a site like Marvin Farms if you are interested in finding out more. You can read through some of the testimonials on the site to see how others have enjoyed the experience.
