Heat and toxin content

The summer heat can be a challenge for the pregnant and lactating sows. There is a need to focus on the function of ventilation systems and sprinklers.

For the webinar, chief researcher Gunnar Sørensen and chief researcher Lisbeth Ulrich Hansen from Danish Pig Research Centre (SEGES Svineproduktion) will give you advice on how to tackle this challenge.

When the silos are emptied in May and June it's often associated with a summer task.

But how do you avoid the content of toxins in the feed, which can affect the sows' appetite and result in poor milking?

Feed expert Kim Koefoed from VKST will tell you more about how to avoid toxin content when empying and filling the silos.
