NAME Nicholas Ham JOB Broiler Breeder Rearing Manager COMPANY Cargill AGE 24 SALARY* Competitive with benefits *industry average

Our main purpose on a rearing farm is to take day old chicks, both male and female, and preparing them for the breeder laying farm. This involves calculating and giving them the correct amounts of feed to follow a set bodyweight profile, vaccinating against different diseases almost every week and grading (sorting the birds by size/weight) as and when needed. I’m also constantly making sure that good welfare standards are upheld and the environment the birds are reared in is as comfortable as possible to promote healthy growth.
