Stop leaving weight and profits behind

Timely vaccine strategies are key to preventing respiratory disease and reducing pig variability to help get the last 20 percent of your barn to market faster.

When disease outbreak occurs, it can cost producers more than 10 dollars per pig due to increased need for medication, decreases in growth rates and feed efficiency, and increased mortality rates and culls. Not all cases of porcine respiratory disease complex (PRDC) present themselves the same. Make sure to work with your veterinarian on a surveillance plan to detect early warning signals of respiratory disease.  Clinical signs can include; lethargy, anorexia, fever, nasal discharge, coughing, and labored breathing. Timely vaccination strategies are key to successfully preventing PRDC and reducing variability to help get the last 20 percent of your barn to market faster.
