Gilts – the future of the pig herd

The third session of Stockman North looked at gilt and dry sow management and was led by vet Duncan Berkshire.  Duncan highlighted the importance of gilts and gilt management as they are the 'future of the herd'. He discussed the advantages and disadvantages of home-breeding gilts and buying them in.

They also discussed protocols when bringing bought-in gilts onto the farm. Trainees had a go at designing an ideal isolation unit and protocols. Click here to see photos of the results.
