Reality Check

Time for a reality check.

Get a clear picture of the realities of dairy farming and make sure it is what you really want to do before you start looking for a job.

Most farm employers want two simple things:

  • the right attitude; and
  • good skills.

Check out the Career explorer section to identify skills that fit with what you could offer a new employer.

Often a farm employer will take on a person with a good attitude, who is willing to learn even if they don’t have the right experience.

Like all employers, farm employers want an individual who:

  • Is honest and reliable;
  • Is an individual who can work on their own;
  • Is interested and enthusiastic;
  • Takes pride in their work and workplace.
