Employee Training Resources

Resources & Tools to Maximize Genetic Potential

Many new farm employees come to a pig farm with little, if any, livestock experience. They may need the context or understanding of why tasks must be completed and when they need to be completed. 

To help make that transition easier, we’ve developed a robust set of resources to supplement current on-farm training programs for new or existing employees on PIC management best practices. These resources support on-farm employees with sow and piglet care, wean-to-finish barn management, and more.

It’s important to provide tools in multiple formats to meet the learning needs of employees. We’ve broken down PIC management best practices into videos, interactive tools, and short articles for easier understanding. These tools help employees realize how each task connects to the big picture, why it is essential, and how each task impacts the animals in their care.

Share these resources with your employees to support employees as they implement management practices to drive efficiency, enhance robustness and improve performance on your farm.
