BPEX Practical Pig App training tool doubled in size

We've just doubled the size of the BPEX Practical Pig App with a new range of video clips added for the wean-to-finish herd. There are more than 40 new videos demonstrating practical tasks, from preparing weaner accommodation to feed and water checks, ventilation, pig handling and selecting pigs for sale.
These are in addition to the 50 clips on breeding herd management, which were produced for the app’s launch last year. It has already been downloaded more than 1200 times by smartphone or tablet computer users and a further 2600 people have viewed the video clips on the internet.
It’s exciting to see how many producers and stockmen are trying our app and how useful they’re finding it as a training tool. You can use it in situ out on the unit so supervisors can watch the video clips with staff and discuss key points in the context of their particular unit – as seen on the BBC Look East news programme recently! 
If there are pig management techniques producers would like to be added to the app, please let the BPEX knowledge transfer team know at kt@bpex.ahdb.org.uk; it’s a dynamic video library that can be built to suit the industry’s needs.
To download the app, free, for smartphone or tablet computer, go to play.google.com or www.apple.com and search for BPEX Practical Pig App or, to download the videos on a PC or laptop, go to practicalpig.bpex.org.uk
