This leaflet provides ways of optimizing animal hygiene relating to stall design and construction and management practices, provides technical cleaning steps to properly reduce the microbial pressure, lists organic-approved suitable chemical disinfectants as well as alternatives. The leaflet informs reader how pathogens are transmitted and suggests ways to deal with ecto- and endo-parasites. “Prevent instead of treat”, is an important guiding principle for successful hygiene management in organic farming. This leaflet is targeted at organic pig farmers and advisors in German-speaking countries.
