About this book

Sows is clearly written with informative photographs and illustrations and full of practical tips and information to achieve optimal production results.

A pig farmer's goal is to get the maximum number of healthy piglets, while balancing animal welfare and developments in society.

This guide ecourages observation of your sows and what to do before problems arise. Awareness and interpretation of pig signals can increase the size of litters and reduce the number of piglets lost. The aim is to have sows in peak condition for easy farrowing and maximum milk production.

Sows starts with you, the breeder for efficient and comfortable farm organisation. The entire trajectory from farrowing to gestation, paying special attention to the culling of older sows and the selection of gilts is discussed. Reading this book will help you coach your sows to a series of worldclass performances!
