On the "Conventional Pig Practises" thread several people mentioned that they deworm "as needed". I was wondering how do you determine this? Do you do fecals? Or based on pig's condition? We deworm routinely here, but if there is a surefire way to just do it as needed that would save $, time and the unnecessary use of dewormer. When I spoke to the vet he said that butcher hogs likely don't need deworming in their life if we are raising outdoors with low stocking density as they don't live very long. They all look good...what does a pig with a high worm load look like?? Unthrifty, scrubby?? What is your preferred method of deworming, dose and product? Thanks a bunch!
