We are looking for somebody to cover every other weekend on our 2,000 pig straw based finishing unit.
This is run on a batch, all in all out, basis. Piglets come in at 4-5 weeks old and stay till slaughter weight (around 20 weeks). 1-2 weeks downtime between each batch.
The job will take approx. 3-5 hours in the morning, and tasks will include:
- Health and wellbeing checks of the pigs, injections if required
- Feed and water checks (feeders are filled through automated auger system, no bags!)
- Mucking out
- Scraping through muck passages with Kramer 750T
- Strawing up
This person could also help out on busier days, i.e. vaccination, slap marking, selecting and loading pigs and clearing pens pre wash out, if available and interested.
