How to save on labour at your pig farm
Finding good personnel and keeping them is one of the biggest problems worldwide in pig farming. And once you’ve found them, they often move on quickly. By automating repetitive tasks, you as an employer can increase both labour efficiency and working pleasure at your business. After all, there’s a good reason that ‘I wish you lots of personnel’ is an infamous proverb.
Fear of technology?
These examples show how technology can solve part of the labour problem at pig farms. So why don’t all businesses do this? Some pig farmers and their employees still hesitate when it comes to using technology in the stall. It’s hard to get used to the idea of walking through the stall with a smartphone or tablet. Even so – it’s a much smaller step than you might think. And once the problem becomes pressing enough, the first changes are quickly made. In crop cultivation, for example, or in cattle-farming, goal-oriented use of easily used technology is now commonplace.
