Tail biting booklet

PIG producers can send off for a free SAC booklet on tail-biting management – the first of a planned series. The booklet, produced for the Scottish Pig Industry Initiative, tackles issues such as overstocking, ventilation and feeding, which can all influence the incidence of tail biting. Copies are available from SPII, Rural Centre, West Mains, Ingliston, Newbridge EH28 8NZ.
