Pig Signals

LOOK! THINK! ACT!

Pigs are constantly giving out signals about their health, well-being and performance. The art is to perceive these signals and to use them to monitor and improve the nutrition, care and housing of your animals.

It is important not to jump to conclusions, but to keep asking yourself three questions: What do I see? Why has this happened? What does this mean?

For example, why is your sow defecating in a lying area? How did your piglet get that dry cough? Is the aggression shown by your grower-finishing pigs due to a struggle for dominance or a cold draught?

Using the knowledge from this book, you can take focused measures and improve your farm results. The Pig Signals Diamond will help you achieve this. Animal-oriented pig farming means working carefully. A mistake made yesterday can lead to problems tomorrow. So do something about it today. But it all begins with your desire to improve. Only then can you look, think and act!
