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.
These guidelines were developed to be globally applicable, regardless of geographical location, operation size, facilities or technical equipment. The nutrient specifications have been validated in commercial environments and have been peer-reviewed by nutritionists worldwide. At all times, please follow the best practices and appropriate standards for animal health and welfare as outlined by the local governing body within your country of operation.
The goal of this manual is to share practical recommendations in an easy-to-digest format. We have structured this manual into seven main sections. Each section contains information about expectations or targets, best management practices and detailed information on critical areas of importance. These guidelines focus on production management. Biosecurity and health protocols are also strategically important drivers of success; however, we have chosen to leave out these components. We suggest you reach out to your herd veterinarian or the PIC Health Assurance team to help develop a tailored program based on your circumstances.
