Sporadic urogenital infections are among the most common infections found in the sow herd, but often difficult to pinpoint and diagnose. This can cause a domino effect within the herd.
Problematic domino effect:
Urogenital health is associated with infections in the urinary and reproductive tracts, which can result in health challenges and low or inconsistent reproductive performance.
Genetics have improved litter size but in turn reduced birth weight of piglets; leading to increased pre-wean mortality. Reducing pathogenic bacteria in sow feces can reduce scours and pre-wean mortality in piglets.
Sow health and productivity in the herd is essential for optimal production. This is why urogenital health is important!
Improve sow health
Reduce vulval discharge
Reduce urine bacterial load
Reduce urinary tract infections
Improve sow body condition
Improve Reproductive performance
Improve farrowing rate
Reduce pre-wean mortality in Piglets
Reduce transfer of pathogenic
bacteria from sows to piglets
Reduce incidence of diarrhea
Improved piglet survivability
Goals to profitability :
- 3 oestrus cycles after puberty
- 30 piglets/sow/year
- 140 kg live weight at first AI
- 180-185kg live weight at farrowing
- Sow longevity in the herd
