Nursery Health

A Healthy Nursery Promotes a Healthy Herd

Weaning and the transition to the early nursery stage are the most challenging times for piglets. Minimizing stress and preventing disease during those first few weeks away from the sow can improve a piglet’s odds of staying healthy.


Glaesserella parasuis (GPS), is the etiological agent of Glasser’s disease, a common but preventable nursery disease, which can cause sudden death in piglets.
