Individual Pig Care — It's The Right Thing To Do
Individual pig care is about doing the right thing for the pig, the pork production system and the pork industry. Finding and treating individual sick pigs early is better for the operation, as every pig that misses the target premium creates a missed opportunity. Equally important, individual pig care is about our responsibility to the well-being of every pig. It's about producing safe and wholesome pork for consumers. It's about keeping the pork industry strong.
It takes practiced skill to scan 1,000 pigs during a barn walk-through, spotting the animals that need treatment. The attached poster is designed to help.
To remove the poster, carefully peel it away from the glue and unfold it to see photos and guidelines to help identify pigs that need individual care. For the convenience of the entire pork industry workforce, the poster is published in English on one side, Spanish on the other.
