This manual is meant to be applicable to boar studs across the world and country-specific regulations and practices have been excluded. The intent is to provide useful information regardless of your geographical location, operation size, facilities or technical equipment.
The guidelines focus on production management and we have chosen to leave out biosecurity and health protocols and acclimatization practices. We suggest you reach out to your herd veterinarian or our Health Assurance team to develop a tailored program based on your circumstances.
