Huge achievements for stockmen in the East

Twenty-nine pig stockmen from the East of England completed the BPEX Stockman Development Programme this week. Their confidence has grown and they’re finding small changes can make a big difference, having taken what they’ve learned back to the farm.
 
The eight-month Stockman Development course is designed to both boost practical pig husbandry skills and give trainees a wider knowledge of the supply chain.
 
The student of the year award went to Piotr Wroblewski, who works for Piggy Green near Bury St Edmunds. He was really pleased to receive the award and said his time on the course has helped motivate him to progress further in his pig industry career. Piotr said: “I think we’ve improved our service management with the sows and also what we do at weaning. I hope we will start to see the results and better performance soon.”
 
Fellow trainee James Hearmon from Rattlerow Farms highlighted about what he had learned about condition scoring sows and how much it had helped his pig management.
Piotr, James and the rest of the group all received certificates of achievement at a special presentation evening in Bury St Edmunds. Their managers also came along for a bite to eat and to help celebrate their success.
