Notes This has proved an extremely useful, frequently updated website providing high quality information during the Foot and Mouth Disease outbreak in the UK in 2001.

The following information is quoted directly, unabridged from the "about" section of the Website:

"About ThePigSite
Welcome to ThePigSite.com..., This web site is devoted solely to Pigs and their good health and welfare. Our intention, with your help, is to continually develop the site as a global hub for information on Pigs, hogs and swine. If the information you're looking for is not on our site, hopefully we will have a link to a site that does have the information. To that end, if there is something you can't find (which is probably plenty at the moment) please let us know so we can do something about it (please use the "contact us" button at the bottom of the home page).

We run regularly updated news articles, and also features which cover topics in greater depth. If you have some news you would like us to include, simply email it to us and we will do our best to incorporate it into the service.

The core information on the site is extracted from our three books Managing Pig Health and the Treatment of Disease, Recognising and Treating Pig Diseases and Recognising and Treating Pig Infertility. As a visitor you can access basic data in the Quick Disease Guide section, and as a registered user you can access the more detailed information in the Pig Health database and also gain benefit from our unique Disease Problem Solver.

The site also includes a Business Directory which we are continuing to build into a comprehensive database of Companies who supply the global Pig Industry.

If you run a Company which is not included on the directory, you can add your details for free, just fill in the appropriate form. There is also an opportunity to raise the profile of your company by taking one of our upgrade packages. Click on the "Promote your Business..." button by the side of our logo at the top of the page and complete the form.

Hopefully you will enjoy and gain great benefit from our web site offerings. We aim to continually improve our service to ensure if you need to know something on Pigs, there is only one place to start on the web... and that's thePigSite.com

Best wishes

Jim Muirhead
Managing Director
