With a problem such as infertile gilts what other ideas could the pigsite forum group add to our forum to help solve the problems that we only use our experience to help out with.
What if we could have a vet one a week or once a month to give some clues on what we need to know to keep our piggeries in check. Please give your thoughts on this it might save a few pigs from their deaths in the future.

    gee a vet once a month would be great. Also a nutritionist to help out with feeds. Yes we do have a feed forum but people chat here on how they feed their pigs and whether they are doing it right or wrong. some belong to the 4h and do it differently and a other use pellets and still others crush their own and some feed scraps, vegies green matter. what is best is just what ever you can read so some help on this would go a long way.

    I totally agree, I may be new to this but the way in which people have tried to help lifts your spirits, knowing that a professional be it vet, feed expert, A.I. expert etc.....was available to help will save sows, weaners, piglets.
    It has to be a good thing.
    And yes photo's should be easily uploaded because they are helpful as a tool for diagnosing any issue from mundane to dire
    Thanks Gents.
