Basic human resource management tools for farms
Anyone knowing the pig business will agree on the importance of the human team force in achieving results. But unfortunately, when talking about employees we often hear just about associated problems.
Biosecurity: The last line of defense against epidemics
In the US, improving biosecurity, as measured by reducing the frequency of PRRS outbreaks in sow herds, has not been sustained over long periods…
Diseases & Solutions
GILTS & SOWS
Optimizing reproductive performance in swine herds through estrus synchronization and ovulation induction.
GESTATION & LACTATION
Discover the complete portfolio of vaccines for the breeding herd, aimed at protecting gilts, sows and their offspring from generation to generation.
Erysipelas – Parvovirosis – Leptospirosis
Control and prevention of these 3 pathogens are key to ensure good reproductive performance in breeding herds worldwide.
Streptococcus suis serotype 2
S. suis not only causes pneumonia, septicemia, arthritis and encephalitis in pigs but is also of great public importance for its zoonotic potential.
Clostridium and E.coli
Cleaning and hygiene are very important to kill the both E.coli and Clostridium bacteria and their spores that cause neonatal diarrhea.
Glaesserella parasuis infection is most prevalent in pigs 4 to 8 weeks of age. This bacterium can also act as a secondary pathogen to other diseases.
Progressive atrophic rhinitis (PAR)
The disease is caused by Pasteurella multocida and affects the upper airways and nasal passages of piglets. When Bordetella bronchiseptica is also present in the farm, both bacteria together cause deformities in the nose.

Almost 100% of the world’s pig populations have some level of Lawsonia intracellularis infection although it is commonly unknown. That’s why it is called the hidden enemy. Uncover it!
Taylor-made prevention and control of respiratory diseases in piglets.
Porcine circovirus (PCV2) and Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyo)
PCV2 and M. hyo are two of the top 5 diseases impacting swine production, acting together most of the times, so it is recommended to control them concurrently. Porcine circovirus disease has a morbidity as high as 50-60% and mortality ranging from 4 to 20%, while, prevalence between 24 and 70% of lung lesions compatible with EP caused by M. hyo at the slaughterhouse have been reported in most European countries.
Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (App)
App is the etiologic agent of porcine pleuropneumonia, which is a highly contagious respiratory disease that can occur in all age groups, but usually is seen in 6- to 20-week-old pigs. It is one of the most important swine bacterial respiratory pathogens found worldwide.
The Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome caused by the PRRS virus, has become endemic in nearly all the main swine producing areas of the world and it is among the most economically significant swine infectious diseases. PRRS may reduce the annual production of the herd by 15%.
Aujeszky’s disease (pseudorabies)
The disease is caused by an herpesvirus (PHV-1) that can remain latent and causes respiratory, reproductive and nervous problems. The virus can survive up to 3 weeks outside the pig. Due to the fact that it is slowly transmitted, it can be eradicated through vaccination, good management practices, and elimination of animals that carry the disease.
