Real Welfare - Discussion points
The range of management points that Real Welfare assessments can highlight for vets and producers to review include:
- History of current batch / lesions / conditions
- Health issues
- Appropriate ventilation, temperature, shelter, nutrition management
- Pen hazards e.g. flooring, obstacles to movement, sharp edges
- Food and water access/layout – are pigs competing for these resources?
- Aggression and behaviour
