Milkers
Breevliet
Wetaskiwin, AB
Our milkers work 8 hours divided by 2 shifts of each 4 hours. Milking is done inside a newly built modern facility. It requires a lot of standing, walking, good coordination and manual dexterity. The labour is repetitive and physically demanding. Safety precautions must be followed to avoid injury and following good animal hygiene practices are necessary to prevent the spread of diseases. Our barn is well ventilated and manure is flushed out regularly. Milkers may routinely lift items weighing up to 20 kilograms or more.
