About The Book

Although this is a technical publication, it is written for students and professionals who choose to operate at the 'sharp end' and want to understand and enjoy pigs and enhance pig comfort with the help of applied science.

The book aims to identify best advice, best practice and best products for the specialized pig environment. It nurtures an attitude of continuous improvement that will not only better the lot of pigs and pig people but also increase the likelihood of improved consumer satisfaction and sustained profitability.
