The process of washing in farming and particularly in pig productions is a very hard demanding job and not very attractive, thus hard to recruit qualified people for. That is why improving upon this task with an automatic washing solution, that cuts down up to 80% of the manual washing labor, is the way forward to both increase productivity and working environment in the pig barns.
As of the same reasons mentioned above, Murphy Farm chose to implement washing robots at their farms.
After thorough training in the use of washing robots by Washpower, Murphy Farm has now 40 new mechanical employees running at their farms in the US.
Senior Production Manager at Murphy Farm, Doug Tennal, says: “We bought one Washpower robot for testing at the beginning, to see if the product was any good and if it worked for our farms and way of working, and it sure did!
Today we have 40 robots running from Washpower across our farms and every robot save us weekly 22 hours, which makes the robot an invaluable help these days with ongoing labor shortage. When you further add up, that the Return Of Investment is only 1½ year, it’s a no-brainer and every employee enjoys the investment every day”.
