Technologist – Agricultural Science

Organisation's Logo

Basic Function: Tail biting is a major welfare, economic and ethical challenge in pig production.

Monitoring the risks associated with damaging tail biting will be an important way to reduce its occurrence on farm, and give farmers greater confidence to raise pigs with undocked tails.

The 'TailBiteAdvice' project aims to develop and demonstrate a data-driven decision support tool that will actively advise farmers on how to reduce tail biting occurrences, based on mainly behaviour-based variables collected remotely during production.

Essential Qualifications

- Candidates must have a QQI Level 8 degree in agriculture, science, or a related discipline.
