Can anyone please assist me with what the daily/weekly duties is for a breeding and farrowing technicians on a pig farm. My son would like to work on such a farm and would like to know what the normal day/weekly responsibility will be.

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

    Feeding, cleaning, brushing, teeth clipping, iron injecting, power washing, moving pigs, weighing pigs, etc... If he's in doors its smellier than outdoor, and some people find it hard to cope with the smell, but with time you don't notice it. Also mating may be part of the programm, either AI or natural serving (sow to Boar). Certainly pig farmings not to every ones liking, but it can take you all over the world and give you a good career, depending on how far you wish to go.
