Many farms that have had a problem with PMWS and that have managed to reduce the levels of mortality in pigs up to 12 weeks of age now have a problem with losses in older pigs. Pigs are dying from over 60kg up to the point of slaughter when most of the costs of producing these pigs have already been incurred. Is this PDNS and/or does it involve Porcine Circovirus 2? Is this happening in the rest of Europe? Can the PCVD project team offer any advice to farmers on teh control and management of these losses? Are there any farmers who can share their experience on what they have done to try and reduce deaths and losses - what worked for you and what didn't work?
