Digi-Pig

The development of digital & visual tools to improve knowledge transfer in the pig industry

Project Summary

Live demos, farms walks & open days are not a feasible method of knowledge transfer in the pig sector due to the threat to biosecurity. The use of digital & visual aids could improve knowledge transfer & teaching methods, improving farm efficiencies without compromising farm biosecurity. The objective of this study is to develop several digital & visual tools (e.g. video clips, factsheets, pictograms, webinars).

 

  Expected Benefits

  • Improved knowledge transfer: Increased information available to clients in a user friendly, biosecure, non-location dependent method
  • Improved farm efficiency: Providing visual & practical information for pig farmers to enhance their skills & knowledge at a time that is most suitable to their working routine
  • Improved education service: Through the improved delivery of workshops & Level 5 & 6 Pig Production courses
