    • Use nursing sows
    • Check for sick pigs every day!
  • Weaners
    • Feed component must match the age of the pigs
    • Restrictive feeding especially the first 10-14 days after weaning
    • Correct housing temperature, dry pens at insertion
    • Number of pigs in the pens
    • No cold draught in the resting area
