A family-run cattle station is looking for three staff for their upcoming cattle mustering season. These roles start around May 13th and will last about 4 months, until the end of August or mid September, depending on the season.
Work prior to mustering will include some fencing (new and repairs), checking waters, cleaning troughs, and servicing vehicles and motorbikes. When mustering season starts, staff will be mustering cattle with two wheel motorbikes. Cattle duties will include drafting and handling at all levels.
Applicants must have:

- Positive can-do attitude and
- Ability to work in a team
- Good communication skills and willingness to follow instructions
- Excellent English
- Previous stock experience preferred but not essential

Pay rate is $200/day. Staff will get days off as work permits, could be one or two days at a time. Single accommodation and lunch and dinner provided on work days. Breakfast and meals on day off are own responsibility. There are only single mens quarters on the station, so these roles will not suit couples.
Only Telstra mobile reception is available at the staff quarters. No mobile phones allowed when working.
This is an absolutely wonderful station to work on. Our three staff from mustering season last year all loved their experience. Two were from family farming backgrounds and one was a diesel mechanic.
Here are some of their comments: "I learned a lot and couldn't ask for a better place or people to work with, thanks for the opportunity" and "The station was an excellent place to work. The family is patient, kind, and great to work for. No complaints"
