Care of pigs from farrowing to weaning
"From birth to weaning is the most critical period in the life cycle of a pig. On the average, about two pigs per litter are lost during this period. Poor management is the major contributing factor even though the actual cause may be crushing, bleeding from the navel, anemia, starvation, or disease. Weaning large litters of thirty heavyweight pigs is a key factor for a profitable swine herd. This Guide attempts to outline management practices that help keep pigs alive and profits high."--First page.
