‘Virtual pig farming’ course – the next challenge

We’ve devised a new Stockman Plus course for this autumn to build on the practical skills and industry knowledge gained in the Stockman Development scheme and/or their previous practical experience. The more advanced course will include problem solving exercises which will be applied to a virtual farm to allow trainees to see the outcome of decisions taken.

Following the success of the Stockman Development courses run across all regions, we feel that these trainees are ready for this as their next challenge!

The Stockman Development and BPEX Institute of Leadership and Management courses are also back for a third year.

The Stockman Development course combines training in practical pig husbandry with visits to feed mills and abattoirs.

The Institute of Leadership and Management course is to help supervisors and managers improve their people management and build their confidence when leading others. Specially-selected modules enable trainees to learn different management techniques and work together to decide on the best ways to handle various situations.
All three courses are flexible: participants can choose particular sessions to attend, subject to availability, or sign up for the whole course.

For more information and how to register, producers should call me or their local BPEX knowledge transfer manager or BPEX assistant skills manager Samantha Bowsher: 07976 980753 or
