A Barn operator’s primary responsibility is to ensure the welfare of the birds under they’re care is maintained. This is done by ensuring the birds have been fed, that there is adequate and quality water available, monitoring pen temperatures, and handling live or deceased birds. Gathering eggs is also a primary responsibility of an operator as the eggs are graded for quality and packaged. Other responsibilities include daily record keeping and data entry of relevant information, weighing birds, and maintaining a clean workspace.

Barn operators may also be asked to assist with barn setup and preparation for new flocks as well as helping with flock placements and loadouts.
