Calf raiser
Wetaskiwin, AB
Caretakers for calves come in the morning and afternoon. Two shifts with a break in between. Duties take place mostly inside the calf barn. The work is somewhat physically demanding with repetitive manual labour. Patience is a must; teaching calves how to drink from a bottle is not always easy.

Safety precautions must be followed to avoid injury when working with machinery and tools.
