Weighing the smallest piglets by weaning gives a better opportunity to feed them properly. It sounds simple, but is something that is far from always happening.

That's why sows die in the farrowing house - the most frequent cause surprising us.


The mortality rate for sows in Denmark in 2018 was 12.6 percent. About half die spontaneously and often without prior symptoms. Most spontaneous deaths happen in the farrow.

Feeding structure and good stomach health in the sows

Structure in the sow feed is important for the sake of stomach health.

Lack of structure in the feed causes changes in the stomach and in the worst case this can lead to deaths by the sows .

‘There is need for an efficient vaccine and to improve the quality of veterinary services together with the biosecurity measures to control African swine fever especially in the low-middle income countries. A vaccine itself, even a very effective one, is not sufficient’ – François Roger

10-Jan-2020andrew.atkinThere is more to mineral and micro nutrients in meat than just iron and I would question the notion that synthetic, plant based 'meats' use resources more efficiently as 'gospel truth'. They deserve a lot more scrutiny.
I do not think that the producers of these products should be permitted to describe them as 'meat', which they are clearly not - label them for what they are to give consumers a clear choice. The livestock industry needs to get its act together and make the case for its place in our economy and society.

Citing law that prohibits the use of words that redefine pork as it has been known by consumers for centuries, Dr. Dan Kovich, director of science and technology for the National Pork Producers Council, issued the following statement: “What’s impossible is to make pork from plants. This is a brazen attempt to circumvent decades of food labelling law and centuries of precedence. Any adjective placed in front of the word pork can only refine it, not redefine it. It’s not pork. It’s not pork sausage. It can’t be labelled as such.”
