Your practical reference guide to optimize performance
Use all available resources to reach your farming goals
Even though you are a professional, you know these situations that you want to check if you are right in what you see and think. How wonderful to have our (online) book to consult and refresh your knowledge. Pig Signals is your comprehensive reference guide to help get better results within your own pigfarming business.
We've made the science behind pig behavior and performance indicators practically applicable, based on issues a pig farmer encounters on a daily basis. If you become aware of what pig signals tell you and how you can act upon it, this method can provide you with ways to make rapid progress.
The true art is learning to see, interpret and correctly respond to the signals you come across in practical situations.
If you only look at technical indicators (daily growth, feed and water use, losses, etc.), you might miss important signals from your pigs and their environment. So, always use all your senses. Embed this in your daily routine.
What do the pigs tell you when you take a closer look?
For example the lying behaviour of piglets can tell you a lot about the climate in a barn. Are they close? It may be too cold. Are they concentrated at a specific spot? There might be some draft wind in the barn.
Also sows in heat send out specific signals that help you determine the right insemination moment. And finishers tell you a lot about their health and wellbeing when you take a moment to observe them.
The Pig Signals concept is based on three basic questions
1. What do I see (hear, feel, smell, taste)? What’s the signal? (LOOK)
2. How did this happen? What’s the explanation? (THINK)
3. What am I supposed to do? Is it okay or should I take action? (ACT)
The (online) book will show you examples of pig behavior and explain how you can use it to optimize your daily management. Grant yourself your own personal copy of the (online) book. Order here or have a free preview first.
