English term or phrase: troughman
Es una profesión (probablemente antigua) que aparece bajo la clasificación de "tripe and foot dresser". No puedo encontrar siquiera una definición apropiada en inglés (que tenga que ver con este tema). Alguna idea? Muchas gracias!

I think that a “troughman” is a person who is in charge of providing food to animals in a long and narrow wood container, also takes care of keeping it clean and ready to be used. I would translate: “tratador” (caretaker), but I’m not sure.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Sí, Vivaldo, tu definición es correcta y ya la había visto. Pero según el título tendría que ser algo totalmente distinto. Gracias de todos modos por tu ayuda!
