After providing a comprehensive review of the fundamental aspects
of farrowing (physiology, facilities, organisation, etc.) in the
first volume, in this second volume the authors focus on the next
phase, lactation. From the technical and physiological aspects that
affect both the mother and the piglet, to production targets,
feeding, health programmes on the farm or personnel management.
These are topics that will undoubtedly be helpful in the daily
practice of professional veterinary surgeons. As in the previous
volume, the authors have achieved a very practical book with
rigorous contents, based on their experience and technical
literature, accompanied by a large amount of visual material to
complement the information given.
