On the latest Pig Edge podcast Laura Boyle joins Ciarán Carroll to discuss euthanasia & the casualty pig

Laura explains what euthanasia is and outlines the key parameters that farmers can use to identify sick and casualty pigs providing guidelines for farmers to help identify when a pig should be euthanised.

She also provides information on the new Teagasc Pig Development Department infographic poster, a decision tree tool for farmers and farm staff to use to enable them to decide on the correct treatment path to follow for pigs and to make sure that they make the right call on euthanasia.
