Denmark: detection of ulcers in sows at a national level

Due to the important increase in the cases of stomach ulcers in sows, Denmark will carry out a study at a national level to try to determine the prevalence of the problem and discover its causes.

The detection of gastric ulcers in sows at a national level is the next step in the battle against ulcers in pig production in Denmark.

During the next two years, stomachs will be checked for ulcers at the abattoirs with the aim of gaining knowledge on the prevalence of this problem and to implement measures to minimise it.

Along 2017 and 2018 the abattoirs will collect, randomly, the stomachs of 20 sows from Danish farms with more than 200 sows, and they will be examined by the Swine Diseases Laboratory.

Each trimester, the results will be published, anonymously, on the SEGES (Swine Research Centre) webpage, and each farm will be informed of the results of the tests performed on their animals. If more than 50% of the sows in the herd show grade 7 (or higher) ulcers, the owner and the veterinarian or consultant will prepare an action plan to improve the animals' stomach health.

On the other hand, on the selected farms, a questionnaire will be carried out to identify risks and to allow the development of new solutions and to make and design specific recommendations and guidelines.
