Indoor breeding unit manager

Stephen Tuer Farms Ltd

Stephen Tuer Farms is a multi site indoor pig production business in North Yorkshire with a single breeding site and a number of in house and contracted finishing sites. The sow herd is commencing a period of housing upgrades and expansion from 1100 sows to 1400 sows initially, with further development planned over the next 2 years. The new dry sow buildings and renovations will mainly involve Skov ventilated fully slatted and liquid fed groups of 10-12 sows. The gilt accommodation is also being upgraded n a similar fashion. All farrowing is liquid fed currently. All gilts are currently produced in house, with the exception of an injection of Danish genetics as part of the initial expansion phase. It is our intention to then breed from these to allow us to close the herd once again. All other stock is moved offsite to our main nursery/finishing unit at weaning. We use Cloudfarms as our main recording system and place a great emphasis on data and technology to manage our operation. Due to the upcoming retirement from pig farming of our current breeding unit manager we are seeking a dedicated and ambitious individual with a passion for improvement and a willingness to work with our technology on farm. Experience of liquid feed systems will be an advantage but training can be provided on the job. An excellent package is offered, including a 3 bedroom managers house and salary by negotiation. We are undergoing considerable investment in the future and you are invited to be part of it. Please contact  [email protected], enclosing an up to date CV to apply for this job or request further information.
