This guide is a collection of key data and practical recommendations that turn it into a reference handbook for pig farmers, technicians and workers on swine operations. With the help of the tables and diagrams included in this guide, the people in charge of caring for pigs will be able to search for the standard parameters relating to production, pig flow and the main clinical signs of swine diseases. In addition, the control lists may be used as a starting point for the identification of disease outbreaks on pig production and breeding farms. All this information is completed with recommendations from John Carr, an international swine consultant.
