New South Wales
Help wanted on small (60ha) beef breeding farm, flood affected and still very muddy, calving has just started to make things more difficult!
20km west of Coffs Harbour on mid north coast NSW.
flood recovery work involves repairing/replacing fencing (would be useful if applicant able to use tractor mounted post driver but not essential; chainsaw and c/saw drill ability also useful), removing drifted and fallen trees and logs and stacking into bonfire piles (chainsaw ability useful but not essential), shovelling mud soup out of traffic areas to replace with harder paving (stones, concrete blocks, sand, maybe spreading gypsum), spreading mulch over bare areas as a seedbed and then spreading seed, collecting flood borne litter, patching potholes in already paved areas (involves collecting and distributing stones/gravel).
not essential for applicant to be able to do all the above, just even assistance with one task would be useful!
and if desired, assistance with animal handling during calving (meds, feeding) would help too
happy to pay if need be but volunteer ok too as i am quite broke after > 4 years continuous disasters. any payments would be on the books, applicant must have ABN or provide "statement by a supplier- reason for not quoting an ABN" as I don't have the software to do wages. no cash payments because i need to claim the expense
applicant should be fit, reliable, safety conscious, able to work in difficult and stressful conditions (incl wet weather if need be), and to absorb and carry out detailed instructions
front gate is locked so i need advance notice of any attendees, to make things more complicated have telecomms issues at the moment but trying to fix (yet again!), prefer phone interview to texting but email contact ok in first instance, do pls provide a phone number that I can call you on and availability details
