Large Animal Veterinarian Position – Hamilton

Career Opportunity, Mixed Practice, Production Animal

Large Animal Veterinarian Position

A rare opportunity is available in South West Victoria with Livestock Logic looking for a large animal veterinarian. The clinic services predominantly sheep and beef clients, and includes some equine and dairy work. Our practice incorporates Cox Street Vets, the small animal clinic, operating out of a separate building. We are a mixed practice, but this role is suited to someone who has done some years of mixed animal work and is now wanting to expand their skill set in sheep and beef medicine and consultancy.

Livestock Logic currently employs 4 vets dedicated to production animals. Our large animal veterinary work is a great blend of beef, sheep and some dairy and equine work with a strong emphasis on reproduction and disease investigations. The business includes a large consultancy and advisory role, working to educate producers. Livestock Logic has a unique role with its clients and this will allow you the opportunity to get involved in more on farm decision making. We are a trusted source of relevant production advice for our sheep and beef clients. The clinic has onsite parasitology (with a full time Parasitologist) and feed testing laboratories. These labs also enhance our more typical clinical veterinary work. We have three curved linear ultrasounds for cattle pregnancy testing.

This position would be ideal for a motivated, enthusiastic individual with good communication skills. The applicant would need to work as part of a dedicated, fun, supportive team. The successful applicant will receive individual mentoring from our experienced veterinarians, and be well supported by all the team. Livestock Logic also carries out on farm research into relevant issues for livestock production and health. We expect the appointed veterinarian to have a role in identifying areas and opportunities for research and to be involved in undertaking this research.

Hamilton, in the Western District of Victoria, is a major hub of Australia’s livestock grazing industry boasting a vibrant regional community with first class schools and a large public hospital within close proximity to the coast, Grampians mountain ranges and wineries. An ideal location for a charming country life for a family, couple or singles!

The position is full time with a 1 in 4 after hours rotation (large animals only). Salary will be above award and commensurate with experience.

We also have a position available for a small animal or mixed animal veterinarian. If you are a couple looking for two veterinary positions this is an opportunity for both of you to be employed within the one organisation in the same town. In this situation, there would be flexibility to adapt the positions to suit two mixed animal veterinarians, providing one FTE vet in each location.
