Manipulating Pig Production II
This massive hardbound volume of 326 pages was the outcome of the exciting second conference of the Australasian Pig Science Association.  The three Reviews were: The effects of handling, transport, slaughter and chilling on meat quality and yield in pigs;   Sow lactation; and, Designing the pig pen.   These are three areas of critical importance, and well worth checking out!   The six Symposia presented detailed discussion on: Factors around slaughter affecting the quality of pig meat;  Neonatal mortality in the pig;  Diet and management of weaner pigs;  Genetic selection - which way forward?;  The effectiveness of current pig vaccines;   Nutrition-reproduction interactions in the breeding sow; and, Pre-mating management of the gilt.  Each area is significant.

The 43 one-page Abstracts come under the headings of Meat Quality;  The Young Pig;    The Growing Pig;  Behaviour and Environment;  Behaviour, Environment and Genetics;  Health; and, The Breeding Pig.
