Our publication entitled, “Care and Management of New Feeder Pigs” was written for beginning farmers seeking information on raising feeder pigs.  The authors wanted to provide information on the best management practices utilized by successful swine producers.  The inclusion of clean bedding material for young pigs is paramount for their health and protection from the cold spring temperatures common in Oregon.  It is our hope that if readers follow our recommendations outlined in this publication they will provide a warm, safe, and clean environment for their pigs.  The picture of two pigs looking out the door of their cozy barn was used to help create an image of good health and high quality care of young feeder pigs.  The caption, “Two pigs looking through door” was included in the publication.
