A pig vet's bugbears on farm

Vet David Chennells, MA VetMB CertPM MRCVS, told the Midland Pig Producer Club what bugs him most on pig units. It was part of a workshop focused on reducing risk of spreading disease challenge throughout pig units. Some of the bugbears he highlighted were:

• Old fridges used for vaccines – they’re always the cast offs from the domestic kitchen and yet they store £1000s worth of vaccine
• Untidy fridges
• Dirty bottles and needles

• Clogged-up fan vents and louvres
• Records stacked up unused
The photos show how a clean and tidy fridge should be and what fan vents should NOT look like!
