How to Apply

Dourie Farming Company Ltd. has been in the Christie family for three generations, the farm comprising the dairy herd and Airlour pig unit. The dairy is a highly specialised, spring block-calving operation, where our 1,100 cows graze outdoors 270 days of the year. We have two rotary parlours with the most recent, state-of-the-art unit built in 2020.

We are leading a cutting-edge genetic research project and our milk is sold into the local Cheddar cheese factory in Stranraer with farmer representation via the Milk suppliers Association, which was founded by Rory Christie.

Airlour’s first-class facilities were completed in 2013, creating the highest-output pig farm in Scotland whilst delivering the highest welfare standards. We operate a closed herd of 200, with all progeny reared. The pigs are marketed via Scotlean, a farmer-owned pig marketing cooperative. Gregor Christie is also a director of Scotlean.

The Assistant to the Farm Manager position is a job for an all-rounder - somebody who wants to be active both practically and organisationally. We are a 1100 cow outdoor diary with 2 rotary parlours rearing all of our own replacements and beef calves to 12 weeks old. We also have 200 sow indoor Pig business with a land holding of 2300 acres.
