The commitment of our people is fundamental to the success of our systems. All Rivalea stock people are qualified at Certificate III level, usually within their first two years of full time employment. There are specific units of competency relating to animal health and welfare embedded within the Certificate III (Pork Production) qualification.
Many of our Supervisory staff hold tertiary qualifications and undertake leadership and other vocational courses. A clear focus of our on-the-job training is on positive animal handling methods.
Staff training in Animal Welfare is complemented by ongoing instruction and guidance by Rivalea’s specialist pig Veterinarians and our Animal Welfare Scientist. More
