Dairy farmers works with cows (or rarely, other animals) to produce milk and related products. They may be responsible for caring for the animals by providing or arranging for food, shelter, or medical care. They are also often in charge of regular milking. Dairy farmers may be responsible for monitoring the cattle and facilities in order to ensure maximum production. Some dairy farms process milk on site, preparing it for sale or creating products such as butter or cheese. Many farmers have some knowledge of the creation of dairy products.
Dairy farming requires little formal education, but training is often necessary. For this reason, a job candidate with prior experience in dairy production or farm work might be desirable.
A dairy farmer job description should seek enthusiastic applicants with the ability to perform demanding physical work. Additionally, candidates who hold a valid driver’s license might be desirable.
