Stockman Plus is the next step on from the Stockman Development Scheme; it aims to continue knowledge acquisition and the technical development of pig unit staff. It is a programme of problem-solving workshops, led by technical experts, designed to build on existing pig husbandry knowledge. The first session also includes a ‘virtual tour’ hour, where participants can find out about each other’s units and job roles. The full-course cost to levy payers is £210+VAT, which includes all workshops, lunch at each session and course folders. Workshops can be attended on an ad hoc basis at a cost of £35+VAT per session. The full-course cost is £700; however, all courses and sessions are 70 per cent-subsidised by AHDB Pork. Sessions start with lunch at 1pm and finish at 5pm.
