Seasonal Large Animal Technician

Each year Anexa Vets employs Large Animal Technicians to provide seasonal Teatsealing services (March – June) and Calf-disbudding services (July – September) to our valued clients. Due to seasonal variation, the exact start date of these roles varies year to year, but once it’s all go, it’s all on. Our Seasonal Large Animal Technicians work during both Teatsealing and Calf-disbudding or during one or the other, depending on what fits in with them. 

We’re currently taking expressions of interest for these jobs.  

Our seasonal technicians work in teams, providing an effective and efficient service to our farming community. Each team is headed up by an experienced team leader providing invaluable support to their teammates to complete in all steps of the teatsealing and calf disbudding processes.  

  • Teatsealing involves the administration of dry cow antibiotics and internal teat sealants. 
  • Calf-disbudding involves the application of local anaesthetic, and disbudding with cautery (hot) irons. All calves are sedated for this procedure. We pride ourselves on best practice disbudding techniques, as well as ensuring high welfare standards for the calves are met. 

You’ll need to be available Monday – Friday and will work varied hours. A good work ethic, reliability, cattle handling skills, and above all, a can-do attitude is required. Vet Tech qualifications are not essential. Full training is provided to ensure the process of either Teatsealing and/or Calf-disbudding are done to the high standards Anexa is known for. These jobs can sometimes be physically demanding, so base strength and fitness are essential.
