New Manual Offers Advice on Managing Pigs in Hot Weather

31 December 2013, at 10:12am

AUSTRALIA - Australian Pork and its partners have prepared a new manual entitled 'Preparing for the Summer Months: Seasonal Infertility and Beyond'.

The summer can be one of the most challenging times of the year for care of pigs as the combination of heat and increased day-length create environmental conditions that can be difficult to cope with and manage.

Over time, the Australian pig industry - through PRDC, APL and the Pork CRC - have spent considerable resources in addressing the issues that affect pig production during the summer.

The outcomes of all this research has been put together in a single publication – Preparing for the Summer Months: Seasonal Infertility and Beyond - which is now available on-line, edited by Dr Ray King and Dr Pat Mictchell.
