As distinct from the mortality caused by the recognised "killer" diseases, many deaths which occur in pig herds are due to factors such as faults in feeding and management, the importance of which are often not fully realised by pig owners. Quite frequently, closer attention to what may appear to be minor points will result in a greater percentage of the litters being reared to marketable weights—with a corresponding increase in the profit margin.
