If you are a small-scale pig farmer in Ontario, join the OMAFRA Swine Team and Grey County Agricultural Services on Wednesday, March 2nd from 7-9 pm as we deliver a course titled “Keeping Pigs and People Safe from Diseases”.
This course will explore practical solutions that can help to keep pigs healthy on small-scale and outdoor pig farms (and protect people from diseases pigs can carry, too). We will discuss how diseases are transferred, provide an understanding of the risks associated with disease to you and your pigs, and how to practically reduce many of those risks on your farm.
This course will not cover the diagnosis and treatment of specific diseases, but will focus on the big picture of maintaining high herd health, which leads to improved welfare, production and food safety.
Pre-registration is required. Please email email@example.com to register. A $15 course fee applies.
