Webinar: Pathogens and Prevention

24 Februar 2022

E. coli, the swine fevers, PRRS virus, Strep suis, PCV2, Salmonella… the list of pathogens swine producers would rather not see in their pig houses is endless. Some viruses, bacteria or parasites can be kept out relatively easily, others are hard work to get under control – if possible at all. Fact is, however, that the theme of Pathogens & Prevention is more important than ever with on one hand African Swine Fever virus knocking on the doors of many countries, and on the other antibiotics being limited as an effective tool to control bacteria.

Pig Progress is arranging a webinar on Pathogens and Prevention with speakers from Royal Agrifirm Group and Biocheck, – zooming in on the issue from various angles. Topics discussed will include how to keep a pig farm safe by applying proper biosecurity, on-farm bug reduction measures, and nutritional solutions. The webinar will air at February 24, at 15:00 CET
