Another New Assignment for 'Virtual Walk the Pens'

US - The latest assignment for Pfizer Animal Health's 'Virtual Walk the Pens' simulator has just been released. In this fourth scenario, the players' wean-to-finish operation is experiencing sudden deaths. They must find out why.

In this scenario, helpful information from a virtual co-worker will be essential in determining the problem. The virtual veterinarian is still on hand for advice, and players can retry the scenario as many times as needed to improve their score.

The simulator is an online educational tool that can be played from any standard computer and is intended to help demonstrate the importance of Individual Pig Care.

New version

We are not sure what is going on. Necropsies of these pigs are showing some strange signs. These pigs were doing fine until this past week or so and then pigs just started dropping dead, good pigs, pigs that were growing fast. All pigs seem to be on feed and doing well. We are fairly baffled. We need you to investigate the situation and take action. We know you can make a difference. This is why we have chosen you to be care-giver of this 2,400-head barn. Something is wrong and we need you to help fix it.

Remember you are competing against other players around the nation for each scenario. There is a competition to see who gets the best scores on this scenario and a competition to see who will get the best score over all scenarios. So come back next month to see what your next assignment will be and add more net profit (or loss) to your overall score based on your actions in the barn. What you do each day in the barn makes a difference.

If you want to set up a system competition, contact your Pfizer Sales Representative or Ken Haas at training@hogvet.com.
