I have worked on 3 different pig farms all in the local area that were all different with different methods of pig keeping. Each farm Ive worked within the team to keep the farm running to our best ability to achieve the best weaning numbers we can. All have been a Monday to Friday basis with alternate weekend work, staying later some nights to make sure everything is done.
