Practical guide to animal-focused pig farming
New updated edition for 2022
Pigs continuously send out information about their health, well-being, and their production.The trick is recognizing these signals and using them to improve your management day by day. That will benefit the pigs, which in turn will benefit your operating results.
Why does a sow defecate in her resting area? How did that piglet get a dry cough? And is the aggression among the finisher pigs caused by fights for dominance, or by draughts? Animal-focused pig farming means working diligently. Yesterday’s mistakes can cause tomorrow’s problems.
Focus your senses every day and do not make any assumptions. What do I see? What does that mean? And what can I do about it?
With the knowledge of Pig Signals, you will learn to recognize suboptimal conditions and to act upon them. But it all starts with the determination to improve: whether or not the Pig Signals knowledge is going to benefit your pigs is up to you!
This book is perfect for anyone who works with pigs, whether it be the farmer, student or vet.
“Successful pig management is about doing the right thing at the right time.”
