This guide is presented as a series of advice sheets, some of which can be used around the farm, that provide rapid information in a format easily understood by every member of the farm team. There are sheets to aid the stockmanship as well as the checking and auditing of biosecurity standards that are considered as the foundation stone of health on a pig farm. Other important aspects such as medicine, feeding, water, temperature, ventilation and flooring issues are explained in a very didactic manner.
