Outdoor pig husbandry manual
The P.I.G have produced a stockperson’s guide to farrowing for all outdoor pig keepers.
It contains guidance for best practice from setting up the farrowing paddock to weaning the piglets. There are links to nest-building and farrowing videos and what to keep an eye on to prevent problems.
SRUC Research and SAC Veterinary Services have produced a range of factsheets summarising projects, offering top management tips and veterinary services.
