US - This month's new assignment for Pfizer Animal Health's 'Virtual Walk the Pens' simulator has just been released. In this ninth scenario, some signs of digestive upset have been observed. Players must must find out why!

These early finisher hogs have done very well so far. Pfizer wants to make sure that they are still progressing fine.

A service manager walked this barn recently and thought they looked great but noticed one or two loose stools per pen.

The current care-giver has not reported any increased incidence of diarrhoea but we want to make sure that this group is still doing okay.

Please walk through this barn and let us know if we should be worried. You have clearance to take appropriate action as you see fit. Do send a report to the veterinarian and follow her directions on actions to take in the barn. I know with your experience, you will do a great job. So make sure these pigs are still doing well!

Remember you are competing against other players around the world for each scenario. There is a competition to see who gets the best scores on this scenario and a competition to see who will get the best score over all scenarios. So come back next month to see what your next assignment will be and add more net profit (or loss) to your overall score based on your actions in the barn. What you do each day in the barn makes a difference.

Remember you are competing against other players around the nation for each scenario. There is a competition to see who gets the best scores on this scenario and a competition to see who will get the best score over all scenarios. So come back next month to see what your next assignment will be and add more net profit (or loss) to your overall score based on your actions in the barn. What you do each day in the barn makes a difference.

In this scenario, helpful information from a virtual co-worker will be essential in determining the problem. The virtual veterinarian is still on hand for advice, and players can retry the scenario as many times as needed to improve their score.

The simulator is an online educational tool that can be played from any standard computer and is intended to help demonstrate the importance of Individual Pig Care.

If you want to set up a system competition, contact your Pfizer Sales Representative or Ken Haas ([email protected]).
