TEST FARM INTERN

Waikato, New Zealand

 

We are an award-winning, innovative company designing and building advanced technology to automate farming. Our world leading guidance control techniques shift cows remotely removing the need for fences and eliminating the manual nature of shifting animals. Halter aims to enable a new generation of more efficient, sustainable farming globally. Our GPS enabled, solar powered devices are designed to remotely guide cows as well as monitor stock health, feed, behaviour and emotion so that farmers can better understand and treat the needs of each animal.

What you will be working on?

A core part of developing this new technology is running our own test farm located 10 minutes outside of Morrinsville. Here we work towards design validation on a herd of 200+ dairy cows, and you’ll be involved with assisting our existing farm team with their day to day tasks which include close work with animals. 

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for hard-working recent graduates or undergraduate students who ideally live close to Morrinsville, and are keen to get involved with something unique and exciting. A great attitude and an interest in what we are trying to achieve is all that is required. We are flexible with hours, but some weekend work may be needed.
