pig farm manager need new challenge

Who is Brian.

I am born 13 of March 1975

I grow up on a breeding farm there was 200 Yorkshire sows,
and we had 120 hectare of land.

In 1992 I started on my education as a pig farmer (on Danish
we call it Virksomheds leder) this education you need if you want your own farm
in Denmark. Its take around 5 years include practice.

What job is Brian Looking for

There are many ways in the job.

It can be an investor, who want to start a pig production,
but the investor is not interested in the production, he is focusing on the
capital, the pig production bring and I take care of everything, I mean, to
find the place, where the farm need to be, I build the production, I make the
production to run, and then I can continue as a director or manager or we can
stop.

It can be farmers, who need a consultant for a period.

It can be a farmer, who want to make his farm bigger and
then he need a manager for a period.

It can be a farmer, who want to retire from the production
and then he need a manager or director.

It can be a bank, who take over a farm and then they need a
manager for the period its take to sell the farm..

And the place of working can be everywhere.

I can speak and understand and write on Danish, English

I can speak and understand 60 % Russian in the pig
production

A good manager has a new plan ready before the first plan is
not working

You go to work in the morning and then you have plan A, but
when you come home in the evening then you are with plan X

In the production

I can make feed recipes

I can select gilts

I can make the right genetic plan, for making the right sows
for the further

I can make the farm so there will be minimum risk of illness
from outside into the pigs

I can make so the sows in average have minimum 2, 48 times
piglets a year

I can make the feed cost low, but with higher effect

I can see when the pigs will be ill before they actually
will be ill

In some cases I can open a dead pig and say why it’s dead

Can make the growing rate on meat pigs higher

Can make the feed use per kg growth less.

What I don’t know I know, I know whom to ask

About the salary

If you believe on that the salary you will pay me it’s an
expensive, then it’s for sure not me you want on your farm.

The salary you are paying me is an investment as you invest
in new sows or new system in the farm.

I have a great knowledge in all concerning pig production
it’s all from genetic until meat pigs and feed, antibiotic, vaccine, you name
it and I think I will know it.

The salary can be fixing so it’s the same amount every
month, or it can be partly with bonus, or it can be only bonus.

About the daily work.

Everybody is doing what I say, I do not want to have meeting
every 2 min to explain the owner the director the workers or other why they
need to do what they have to do, it’s a waste of time if everybody first need
to understand and then do. (Without hurting anybody) but it’s only me who knows
how to do the things in the pig production. And I am working as a bulldozer and
I am not looking how many hours I am working, and this everybody will do too.

I will be glad to come to your office for a talk, but I
expect the interview will be on English.
