Dear Ms. Cynthia Landry,
I am writing to apply for the job of Dairy Farm Manager with Stonyfield Farm.
Having grown up helping a friend of the family work on his small farm, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in this industry, so I acquired a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture Studies. I am now searching for an opportunity to put my knowledge, skills and experience to good use.
My experience includes operating farm machinery and equipment such as tractors, plows, wheat thrashers and brush hogs. I am familiar with irrigation systems and providing general maintenance to keep them and the equipment working properly. I have extensive knowledge of seeds and fertilizers in addition to knowing when to plant the different types of crops for the best results.
I also have experience caring for and feeding a large herd of cattle, milking the cows and performing similar duties to keep these animals in the best health possible. I have outstanding multi-tasking abilities, time management skills and the ability to stay organized and supervise the workers to ensure all jobs are performed in an efficient and timely manner.
I understand how stressful this type of work can be especially when something goes wrong but I have the ability to work well under pressure and to find solutions to problems as they arise. I am confident that I have the knowledge and skills you are searching for in a Dairy Farm Manager and I hope to meet with you in person to discuss the details of this position and what I can contribute if hired.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to arrange an interview.
