Starting mid-April, a 4,100 hectare Controlled Traffic Farm (CTF) in Wongan Hills, WA (2 hours northeast of Perth) is looking for an experienced tractor driver to commit through the end of seeding season (early-mid June).
Machinery duties prior to seeding will include spreading with a Agrispread 20t spreader (VRT) and some loader work with a JCB. There will also be some machinery maintenance to prepare the seeding rig and some general farm labouring.
Once seeding starts, you will be operating a modern Cat Challenger 500 hp tractor (Greenstar GPS) with a 12 meter seeding bar. Hours before seeding will be 45-60 per week. When seeding starts, work will be 6-7 days a week, 12 hour days on day or night shift.
Applicants must have previous experience operating large scale farm machinery and experience with GPS autosteer is preferred. General mechanical abilities, good English and a drivers license are also required.
Pay rate will depend on experience and experienced operators can expect at least $26/hour, potentially more for people with multiple seasons of seeding experience.
Accommodation provided in staff quarters and staff are to arrange their own food/meals.
Here's some feedback from our 2019 seeding casual: "Very good location, close to the Perth. Glen and Natalie very nice and friendly people. All machines are in very good condition, I can't say that every farm where I have been. So that is excellent place where to work."
