Name: LAURA BARRITT
NZ Residency Status: Work Visa
Type of Work Sought: A dairy or beef cattle farm anywhere in New Zealand.
I don’t have relevant qualifications in either areas of work, but I do have experience and a good head on my shoulders.
Relevant Experience: My first experience of farming was three years ago in Tasmania where I worked on a dairy & beef family run farm, and assisted in the research development of various new cattle feeds that looked at how cows digest vitamins, oils etc and how to enhance the cows lives as well as the quality of milk through feed.
After my visa ended I took a break home and then got offered a role on a Station in the Waikato, where I am now. However as the season draws to a close I feel I would like to go back to a different way of farming.
Prior to moving to Australia I was in the sustainable building industry in North Wales and enjoyed helping our planet whilst improving peoples living arrangements.

Name: SHERYN DEAN
WORK SOUGHT: Farm sitting, calf raising or short term temporary work.
Available from August 2020
Relevant Experience: I have a lifetime experience farming and have had my own organic block for 20 years. I have exensive knowledge in:
1.) Productive trees. This started with fruit and nut trees, but has extended to include fodder and shelter.
2.) Animal husbandry. I have bred and raised pigs, poultry, sheep and cows for years. Have hand milked house cows, raised calves on foster cows and milk and worked with a variety of heritage breeds. So generally done all the varied tasks that go with farming.
3.) Regenerative pasture. Have played with diversity, multi-level fodder, progessive and rotating pasture species, but still much more to learn!
I am 51, female, currently between properties so looking to have a bit of fun and learn something new and I come with a (well-trained poultry- and cat-friendly) Border Terrier dog.
Responsible, have common sense, and versatile.
Name: MAYME OLIVER
I am a shepherd with a good range of skills. I want to study at Lincoln for Msc and so I am looking for accommodation on a farm/in a rural setting.
Happy to exchange rent for farm work OR pay rent and be there to help on farm as required.
I have a dog, which I intend to keep for mustering and dog trialling. I am hoping that there might be someone with a spare cottage who needs help on farm from time to time and this might suit them perfectly.
