Knowledge Transfer Bulletin 17: Shoulder Sores
Monday, 15 August 2011
It is of interest to all parties to reduce the number of sows with shoulder sores, as sores not only affect performance but are also a major welfare concern. Reducing shoulder sores may have a greater impact on productivity than initially thought as many factors that cause shoulder sores can be linked with other areas of production, and a chain reaction of improved production efficiency will occur once the action plan is implemented.
