Employing People on the Dairy Farm

Farm labour is often necessary for the smooth running of the dairy business.

Employing people within agriculture is becoming an increasingly complex process.  We have a dedicated section within this website to cover the administration and legalities of employing staff such as registering with HMRC, contracts, timesheets, wages, etc.  Find all this information here.

In this section, we've gathered together a series of contingency plan documents to help guide stand-in or relief staff in some of the routine, daily tasks.  These can be printed out and the details tailored specifically for your farm.
