International Conference on the Epidemiology and Control of Biological, Chemical and Physical Hazards in Pigs and Pork
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The SafePork conference series began in 1996 to bring together international researchers, industry, and government agencies to discuss current Salmonella research and identify research needs pertaining to both pig and pork production. In subsequent years topics of research presented at these conferences expanded to include other chemical and biological hazards to pig and pork production.

Abstract

The present study evaluated, whether vaccination against both PCV2 and Lawsonia intracellularis in the same herd could be economically beneficial for the farmer and at the same time reduce the antibiotic consumption. The study was carried out in a wean-to-finish herd receiving 1000 weaned pigs ever 7th week. The herd experienced lowered average daily eight gain (ADWG), increased feed conversion rate (FCR), and high mortality in the finishers, and use of a group medication with antibiotics for treatment of clinical disease was frequently necessary.
