10 February 2020 Conservation Herd Manager
La Societe Guernesiaise

We are seeking a volunteer to take over the role of Manager for the Conservation Herd. The Herd Manager is responsible for the management of the Conservation Herd. As the registered keeper of the cattle, this is primarily focussed on the welfare of the animals – ensuring they have enough forage, water, are safe and secure and their husbandry meets local animal welfare legislation. A team of voluntary stock checkers check on the animals each day and will inform the Herd Manager should any issues need resolving. Roughly twice each week the battery will need replacing and the water bowser filling up. During the grazing season (April – October) the herd require moving frequently; the timing is determined by the Herd Manager and land owner who are jointly responsible for monitoring the state of the grasslands. Deciding when and where the cattle should be moved is dependent on several factors including cattle needs, weather and conservation objectives. The Herd Manager and volunteers undertake the fencing and move the cattle. Other tasks include arranging contactors to cut and bale hay for winter feed, helping to rear young calves, arranging the slaughter, butcher and sale of beef annually, maintaining accounts, fundraising, applying for charitable grants, and promoting the work of the Herd. The manager is actively supported in these roles by a team of volunteers, La Société Guernesiaise and Environment Guernsey staff. The charity owns a working vehicle, livestock trailer and all other necessary equipment to manage the small herd of cattle. The ideal candidate will have experience of working with large animals and a practical attitude. A category BE driving licence is desirable funding may be provided to the successful candidate to obtain this licence if required. The workload varies throughout the year, but averages roughly 10-12hrs a week. This role would suit someone who works part-time or flexible hours, but would also be suitable as a job share.
