AHDB Pork’s Ventilating Pig Buildings guide is now available in hard copy format, having already prompted move than 2000 downloads in its online version.
“We’re absolutely thrilled with the initial demand for the guide, and its popularity indicates that ventilation is an area that producers and the allied industry want to learn about,” said AHDB Pork’s environment and buildings project manager, Susan Rabbich, adding that making the guide available in print was the next natural step.
“The content of the guide aims to help pig producers provide optimum living conditions for pigs, thereby improving production efficiency, through a better understanding of the principles of ventilation and types of system available.
“We’ve received positive feedback about the guide but particularly with regard to the producer case studies. Farmers like that they can relate to the problems other producers have encountered and learn how to overcome them.”
