This book provides real guidelines on swine biosecurity methods, and it will be useful to veterinary surgeons, teachers and advisors as well as students who will provide for tomorrows industry. The format is deliberate to provide the farmer and advisor with an easy reference source with quick fixes; it is more of a how to than a textbook. Many of the pages can be used by farmers as advice sheets which can be used around the farm to provide rapid and useful information on pathogen control.easy reference source with quick fixes; it is more of a ?how to? than a textbook.

John Carr

John started learning the ropes about pigs at the age of 11. He qualified as a veterinarian in 1982 by the University of Liverpool. After five years in general practice he returned to university to complete a Leverhulme residency in pigs and a PhD in urinary tract problems of pigs in Liverpool, where he specialised in microbiology and pathology. He has taught production medicine to veterinary surgeons and farmers throughout the world through positions at several universities in the United Kingdom (University of Liverpool and the Royal Veterinary College of London), the United States of America (North Carolina State University and Iowa State University), and in Western Australia at Murdoch University. John runs a consultancy practice with clients in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa. John specialised in maintaining the health of pigs through promoting excellence in stockmanship and production practices while controlling the cost of production. He has published several books and more than 200 refereed and non refereed scientific papers.
