Day 1

There will be a full day of discussion along with a farm tour to discuss issues such as fencing, water, housing, feeding, farrowing, land management and much more. There is plenty of opportunity to inspect the pigs as well. Nutrition for pastured pigs is highlighted today along with understanding the differences in pig breeds and the carcass they produce. We will also cover legal requirements for owning and selling pigs and marketing options for your pastured pig farming business.

Day 2

This is a hands on day that will cover all aspects of moving and handling pigs, inspecting and assessing health and well-being, carrying out vaccinations, health treatments and elective husbandry procedures. We go a little deeper in the relationship between nutrition and health as well as the recognition of common pig diseases and preventative measures you can implement on farm.
