US - This month's new assignment for Pfizer Animal Health's 'Virtual Walk the Pens' simulator has just been released. In this tenth and final scenario, water intake of the finishers is lower than usual. Players must must find out why!

A flag has gone up. One of the barns with finisher hogs is experiencing reduced water intake according to the water meters. Typically, this means this barn is experiencing some sort of disease break.

You have an assignment. We need you to walk through this barn and see if intervention is necessary. You have clearance to go ahead and take action.

Please report to the veterinarian if you see any worrisome signs. He will give you feedback on actions based on signs that you are seeing. This group has done very well so far and we do not want to have major losses at this age of pig. Please do a thorough job at looking at individual hogs and the group in this barn.

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. With thi s bieng the final assignment, you will have reached your final overall score based on your actions in the barn.

Playing the 'Virtual Walk the Pens' game

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.
