IGOR-P: A framework to facilitate the use of available data sources to improve pig health and welfare surveillance in Great Britain
MetadataShow full item record
Monitoring health and welfare can benefit the pig industry by measuring the effectiveness of control and improvement initiatives, assessing change over time and helping to recognise emerging issues or threats. In England, substantial amounts of pig health and welfare data are collected by a large number of government agencies and industry bodies. The challenge is to optimise the use of available data sources to augment existing surveillance systems; especially when data capture, for these sources, has not been designed with such use in mind.
