Hey does anybody have any good job service sites where you have been able to find employees for your farm? We are looking for 2 more people to work for us for the past few months and have not had any luck. We have had a few people apply but most of them are either not qualified, not willing to put in the required hours, or just not the right fit for our operation. Or even is anybody on here interested in a job? If you are leave a message on my wall or send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org We are in need of at least one more person before spring and with the luck we have been having I am afraid we will not have enough people this spring. If anybody has any ideas or is interested please let me know!
I guess I should have added this right away. There is no set job description we farm 12,000 acres of crop land 3,000 acres are irrigated; growing spring wheat, winter wheat, sunflowers, corn, and soybeans. We also recently built a feedlot to background our calves that come from our 300 cow/calf herd. The job would be anything that is involved in production agriculture on the farm side of it. Anything from planting, spraying, combining, driving semi, working cattle, feeding cattle, helping with calving, checking fence, checking fields, etc.
It is a standard farming operation and we would prefer to hire somebody that already has on the farm experience who is will to learn and work hard. We stay fairly busy year round so it would be a full time job.
I am really not sure what to all add, it would be a job that involves helping with all seasons of farming and all operations that take place.
Wages are negotiable and dependent on work experience and qualifications such as having a commercial driver’s license. Again if anybody is interested send me an email at email@example.com
Tell me this...why is it getting so dang hard to find good farm help??? You would think in the area we live in it wouldn't be all that hard to find full time help but seems like nobody will last and they move on or you just flat out can't find help..kinda sucks. I told my father-in-law after corn harvest I will go off of salary with him and be more full time with my seed sales so it would free up a salary to bring another guy aboard so we always have 3 guys come harvest....been advertising for about a month now and like one call and they were just semi-interested...at this rate it will just be the two of us come harvest with our grain bagger.
we need to have a wage auction! haha...we may have lucked out and found a local guy...nothing final yet
