articles about mortalityTags
We are called because of sudden deaths in several integrated fattening farms.
In the last 4 batches of weaned piglets, the farmer saw around 3% of anorexic and lethargic piglets. All the treatments he tried failed (amoxicillin or florfenicol injections), and finally the piglets died.
The pen and farm charts indicated a rapid jump to 40 % mortality in several finisher sheds over one to 2 weeks.
