ProHand has been designed in recognition of the vital role that stockpeople have in the overall productivity, welfare and health of the pigs in their care and control.
ProHand builds on the extensive scientific research on factors that affect the productivity and welfare of farm animals. It is a proven training program designed and tested on stockpeople at commercial farms around the world.
ProHand Pigs improves:
- The interaction between the stockperson and pig by minimising handling stress
- Animal performance and welfare
- Stockperson work motivation, performance, and job satisfaction
The online training program specifically targets those key attitudes and behaviours of stock people that have been shown to have a direct effect on pigs.
