Job Details

We have an exciting new job opportunity for a pig stockperson to join a free-range unit in Norfolk IP24. 

Our client needs someone to be responsible for maintaining the high standards of welfare expected by the company and its supply chain. The farm is a 750-sow unit operating a 4-week weaning system, currently re-popping. You will be responsible for the husbandry of the breeding gilts/sows and their offspring. You'll have support from your line manager and use modern and well-maintained equipment and tractors.

  • Wash tents and huts between batches to maintain proper biosecurity and keep the herd as healthy as possible
  • Artificial insemination of breeding stock includes walking the gilts/sows to the service hub
  • Cull sows, boars, and weaners/piglets to be loaded onto HGV (or tractor drawn) haulage when required
  • Ensure the farm is run as a safe, welcoming, and supportive space
  • Communicating effectively with peers and line management is expected to maintain healthy working relationships
  • Play a role in raising high-health piglets whilst giving gilts and sows the best possible treatment
