Ryan George | Biography
I have worked in the maintenance department for a year and a half now. The majority of my time is spent keeping all of the feeding and ventilation equipment in the brooding barns operating like it should. In early February Troy Cisewski, the Brooder Supervisor, and myself went through all of the barns and checked the equipment and made a list of repairs, preventive maintenance, and improvements that we felt needed to be made.
The list included redoing the suspension system for nipple lines and the feed hoppers, as well as various timers, sensors, switches and motors that needed replacement. Getting all of this done in between all of the flat tires, snow plowing and other repairs on the farm was not easy. It took me through the first week in March to get the barns how we wanted them so that Troy’s crew could “set up” the barns for the first batch of chicks.
