Advanced Pig Farming (Tuesday 13 November)

Smartphones, sensors, drones and apps… The digital revolution is taking place all around us. Agriculture is increasingly embracing modern technologies as well. Swine farming offers many opportunities as well as challenges for these novel technologies. Which solutions have appeared on the market, how can they help pig producers do a better job and what to do with new data and insights gathered from these applications? This unique seminar presented by Pig Progress will provide inspiration and answers for the years to come!

Gut Health Pigs (Wednesday 14 November)

How to ensure an optimal intestinal health in pigs? That question is probably one of the most frequently asked questions – and that is for a reason! Intestinal problems in pigs are common around weaning, and conventional solutions like antibiotics or zinc oxide, commonly used for decades, are under pressure these days. Therefore, there is a need for alternatives and for deeper knowledge. Why do gut problems occur, and which methods can be applied to keep them under control without harming the animal, its environment or even public health? Pig Progress will devote two separate sessions to this theme, full of food for thought!

  • Piglets weaned at an early age suffer from different stresses
  • Sudden change in dietary regiments and management at weaning puts a heavy burden on the immature digestive system of the piglet
