Does corn quality influence pig growth performance?

Author(s) : L. Cloutier et al.
Expertise : Feeding and animal nutrition

Corn is the main ingredient used in grower pig feed in Quebec. The 2019 corn harvest was catastrophic, due to an unprecedented weather cocktail: late spring, very dry summer, torrential rains, high winds and an early arrival of snow. This led to a harvest before optimal grain maturity and very high humidity levels. Such conditions have forced producers to dry their grains in dryers in order to reduce moisture. All of these conditions inevitably affected the quality of the corn.

The pre-tank, a trap to avoid

Author(s) : S. Turcotte and R. Mailhot
Expertise : Building and livestock management | Public health

Despite awareness-raising efforts, even today, many producers enter confined spaces without taking the necessary protective measures. They convince themselves that it is not necessary to set up the entire entry procedure, because they are only going in for a minute, they have already come down several times, and nothing happened ... MISTAKE! Whatever the reason, you should never go down into the pre-tank without putting in place the necessary safety measures.
