The Pig Issue - September 2016

In this issue we open by looking at the importance of fly control given the fact that as causing skin lesions at slaughter flies are also major vectors of disease.

We also take a look at lameness in sows which can be a serious problem and is generally the second greatest cause of non selective culling – after infertility.

We also have an update on antibiotic usage, muse over ventilation and consider the ongoing threat of ASF to the UK.

Happy reading!
