INTRODUCTION TO PIG PRODUCTION
From facilities to health, you will learn the basic concepts of managing breeding, farrowing, nursery, and grow-finishing facilities. More than that, you will see how to differentiate different breeds, how pork production and demand are distributed across the globe, and critical points to consider to improve pig performance and health. The key to a successful pig production system is not just high-performance pigs, but also high-performance people.
