During the study "applied pig management" we teach you how to care for the animals and their environment, so that they can produce under the best conditions possible. You learn how to propose improvements to local management, clearly and with confidence. You also learn how to handle primary livestock products, take care of the pig housing and environment to reduce any threat of infection, and analyse farm results so you can report to management about making the farm and its production more efficient – both technically and economically.

Our government is working on a new fellowships program, but the outcome is unknown by now.
