Proper pig handling techniques can minimize the stress on pigs and their handlers. This two-part video series – Smart Pig Handling – illustrates how stockpersons can safely and effectively handle their herds. Canadian producers can contact their provincial pork organizations for an extended version of the training, which can be customized to their farm types.
The development of this video was supported by Alberta Pork, Sask Pork, Ontario Pork and EPQ. It was also supported by Growing Forward 2, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative, and the Government of Alberta. The project’s main support came from the FCC Ag Safety Fund, administered by the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association with funding from Farm Credit Canada.
