Pigs Managing the Sow and Litter

Duration: 2 hours

Each phase of a sow's pregnancy calls for a distinct feeding approach. From weaning to service, the farmer is concerned with preparing the sow for a good ovulation rate so that the sow ultimately gives birth to a large litter. This is commercially important. In this course, you'll learn about the management of husbandry operations associated with a sow and litter, from feeding a gilt through to suckling piglets.
