Ventilation guide now available in hard copy
11th Dec 2016 / By Alistair Driver
AHDB Pork's Ventilating Pig Buildings guide is now available in hard copy format and can be ordered from the AHDB Pork website.
Previously only available electronically, the guide has been popular to date, with over 2,000 copies downloaded since March, said Susan Rabbich, AHDB Pork’s environment and buildings project manager.
She said: “We’re absolutely thrilled with the initial demand for the guide, and its popularity indicates that ventilation is an area that producers and allied industry want to learn about. Making the guide available in print was the next natural step.
“The content of the guide aims to help pig producers provide optimum living conditions for pigs, thereby improving production efficiency, through a better understanding of the principles of ventilation and types of system available.
