39: A practical approach to delivering clean water to your pigs

Written by AHDB

In the first AHDB Pork podcast we focus on water.

We hear from Zanita Markham (AHDB) and Mark Jagger (Tulip) as we look at the importance and impact of cleaning water systems on pig performance, along with how water can be used to deliver medication.
