The solution to the problem of nursery pigs

What is a nursery pig? A nursery pig is a newly weaned piglet that needs special care for a period of time before it can be transferred to the fattening stage!

As the nursery pig is still very young, and it has just left breast milk, it begins to feed on a staple food basis! Therefore, the nursery pig The incidence rate is still relatively high, and the mortality rate after the onset is very high!

Therefore, the survival rate of piglets in the nursery period has always troubled the pig farmers!

1.Weaning stress

Piglets are weaned and many pig farmers use a one-time weaning method. Because of the stress of piglets, it is very easy for the piglets to get sick. The scientific approach is to use gradually weaning or weaning in batches, generally complete the weaning work within 5 days!

In addition, we must adhere to the principle of three maintenance, it is best to drive away the sows so that the piglets remain in the original circle, not Transfer to groups to work, and after weaning the piglet, feed the original suckling piglet!

The nursery bed can help the pig to reduce the transmigration stress. The piglets are kept in the bed before the transfer, and the nursery bed is similar to the activity bar of the piglets on the farrowing bed, which helps the piglets adapt to the culture environment as soon as possible and reduce the stress.

The nursery bed facilitates piglet management. There are about 15 litters of litters. Large-scale pig farms have to manage dozens of litters at the same time.

The task is very heavy. The use of piglets in nursery beds is different. The piglet nursery is mainly composed of slatted floors, fences and automatic troughs. Need to set up manure urine ditch below the nursery bed, you can save the daily cleaning labor.

Moreover, only one person per day is required to record the growth and health status of each litter of piglets, and the piglets can be easily managed on a large scale.

2.comfortable environment

Due to the small weight of nursery pigs, their own resistance is poor. Therefore, it is necessary to provide a dry, warm and airy environment. Piglet temperature should be controlled above 25°C. In cold winters, it must be ensured that the temperature cannot be lower than 20°C, otherwise it will cause casualties!

In addition, it is strictly forbidden to splash water on the body piglets. While keeping the pigsty dry, be sure to pay attention to the ventilation of the pigsty!

Incubation beds help isolate feces and reduce the prevalence of piglets. The nursery bed has a height of 30cm from the ground, and the plastic floor used for dropping pigs can provide piglets with a clean, dry, warm and fresh air environment so that the prevalence of piglets can be reduced and pig farms can be improved. The production efficiency.
