New edition of British guidebook for hog farmers available
Posted Feb. 24, 2014
The second edition of Managing Pig Health has been published and is now available to interested Iowa hog farmers.
The 600-page, hardcover book offers a fresh and comprehensive guide to practical veterinary information for pig farmers, veterinarians and technologists around the world. It’s designed for people at all levels — including those with little biological or zoological knowledge — and it acts as a checklist for use on the farm and is helpful in improving dialogue with the veterinarian and other visiting farm consultants.
Managing Pig Health was written with a clear objective: to help the pig producer or advisor understand and manage health on the farm, including identifying health/disease issues that arise. The book also aims to offer management and treatment advice, to be used in conjunction with your specialist veterinary consultant, to maximize health, production and profitability.
The book is written by British authors M.R. Muirhead, T.J.L. Alexander, and Dr. J. Carr (Ed) and sells for $189.75.
