Attention to detail is essential on every unit to improve pig performance, which is one of the things that led us to develop our new Practical Pig app. It features a whole library of short video clips demonstrating practical management techniques on farm.
The clips explain why tasks are done in a certain way and what impact that can have on pig productivity and, because they are available as a free app for smartphone and tablet computer, pig stockmen and managers can use them while they're out and about.
You can download the app, free, at play.google.com here or the videos can also be viewed on the BPEX website here.
Breeding herd management has been covered first, as part of the Breed +3 initiative, and filming for finishing unit management clips is due to start in autumn 2013.
Have a look and let us know what you think! We'll be adding new clips regularly so please tell us if there's something you'd like to be included. Please comment below or email me.
