Pig Health

Why Pig Health Matters

Disease is the No. 1 cause of decreased pig performance, so pork producers understand the importance of maintaining a healthy herd. When pigs are healthy, they’re more likely to reach their full potential, which translates to greater success and profitability for pork producers.

Enteric Disease

A healthy, protected gut has significant positive impacts on pig performance. Enteric diseases, including porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED), salmonellosis and ileitis, are common gastrointestinal disorders that, if left untreated, can have devastating effects.

Respiratory Disease

Swine respiratory disease can destroy profitability in pig production. These diseases are caused by respiratory viruses and pathogens, including porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), porcine circovirus Type 2 (PCV2), Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (Mhp), influenza A virus in swine (IAV-S) and secondary bacterial agents.

Reproductive Disease

Reproductive diseases, like porcine parvovirus (PPV), when present in breeding herds, can cause reproductive disease that potentially results in reproductive failure, costing producers unrealized potential.
