Split suckling explained

We've just added a new video to the BPEX website which shows Tom Lloyd from the Hartpury College Pig Unit demonstrating split suckling and explaining the suckling pattern on the unit.
Split suckling takes Tom about 10 minutes per suckling shift to sort out the litters and the benefits he has seen include:




    • Piglets receive a good intake of colostrum

    • Mortality is reduced

  • Good for staff morale

Watch the video and listen to Tom explaining the system by clicking here.
