Program description

In order to train students and advise farmers on pig husbandry one should have a good understanding of the primary production process. In this module the emphasis is put on the animal and how to take care of it in such a way that a good production is obtained. The focus is on medium-scale, semi-commercial farms with low technology input.

Target Audience
Extension officers, teachers and instructors in animal production and managers in the field of pig husbandry.

Objectives
As a result of the training the participant is able to:
• Execute daily, weekly and periodical care in a pig unit leading to acceptable technical results;
• Explain how the different ‘production factors’ independently and in combination with each other affect production in quantity and quality;
• Formulate an advice leading to a more efficient production;
• Accept that motivation and a positive attitude is necessary to achieve good results;
• Judge the husbandry systems at PTC+ for applicability at one’s own working place;
• Diagnose, treat and prevent the most important diseases of swine.
