*FREE INFORMATION LEAFLET on PIG GENETICS: download [BPEX]

The pig industry has traditionally used a Large White terminal sire over a Large White X Landrace dam, but recently there has been increased use of three-way crosses using Hampshire or Pietrain boars as "terminal sire". Sire lines from these breeds are linked to increased piglet vigour, improved weaning performance, faster growth rates and lower mortality in all phases of production. This factsheet is an independent comparison conducted by the Pig Development Centre - a study of piglets from each of three breed crosses evaluated on the same commercially-based research farm - an impartial assessment of the major intrinsic differences between modern sire breeds for the benefit of farmers and their advisors.

*FREE INFORMATION LEAFLET: WEANING LITTERS & DRINKERS RATIOS: download (.PDF 333Kb)

Establishing the Weaner: At weaning the piglet experiences multiple challenges including the stress of being taken from the sow, being mixed with other pigs, establishing a new "pecking order", coping with a new environment, a change of diet and the health challenge associated with all these stresses plus meeting new bugs from a new pen and penmates. Encouraging good feed and water intake post-weaning, reducing stress and promoting wellbeing and immune function are top priorities!
