L'importance des 72 premières heures de vie

| Presented in FRENCH

This webinar will present the important principles for maximizing the survival rate of suckling piglets as well as concrete actions that can be applied on-farm to achieve this. The focus will be on the first 72 hours of the piglet's life, because as we know, the majority of pre-weaning mortality occurs during the first 3 days after farrowing.

If a good job is done during these first few hours, not only will more piglets be alive on day 3, but the table will be set for a better survival rate and better long-term performance on this group of piglets.
