Small pig management
Did you know?
Simple, well-managed creep feeding in the farrowing house can make a significant improvement in survival rates of piglets. Two trials showed the following:
See Farm Case Study 6
|Trial 1||Pre-wean mortality %|
|Without creep training||19.9%|
|With creep training||11.5%|
|Trial 2||Pre-wean mortality %|
|Without creep training||18.5%|
|With creep training||14.5%|
