Themed newsletters 2012

Theme: Housing & Climate

As with humans, pigs are sensitive to the climate around them. Too much heat? The pigs will not eat. Too much cold? The pigs will not grow. And let us not forget the impact of the seasons on the sow reproductive system. In short: there are plenty of reasons to keep a closer look on the in-house climate. This newsletter will help you keeping up to date with the latest developments.

Theme: Liquid Feeding

With ever-increasing feed prices, many producers wonder what to feed their pigs? Ingredients form a major part of the costs of any pig producer, so why not considering going liquid? After all, keeping costs down is one of the main reasons to do so. Read all about it in this newsletter!

Theme: Breeding

Prior to weaning, growing and finishing, there's always the stage of gestation and farrowing. Over three months in which sows carefully breed a litter of invaluable piglets. This process is essential and needs to be addressed with the greatest care. How to keep the gestating sows, what to feed them and how to make the farrowing process as easy as possible?

Theme: World Pork Expo 2012

Proudly announced as the world’s largest pig-only trade show, the annual World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa, has a lot more to offer than only business.

Prudent management, as well as the science behind it, will receive a lot of attention in this mailing.

Theme: Piglet Feeding
