Dairy Farm Worker
Dairy farm workers care for the animals and equipment used in milk production. Employees at a dairy may feed and water livestock, clean and maintain machinery and animal living quarters, keep records on the animals and monitor the health of cattle.
They may also be responsible for assisting in the birth of calves and administering vaccines or other medications. Dairy cows must be milked daily, and dairy workers operate the machinery that extracts, purifies and stores milk, which also requires carefully following sanitation practices.
