Abstract

Swine dysentery is a mucohemorrhagic, exudative disease with lesions confined to the large intestine of pigs. Estimates from a 1976 survey by the Livestock Conservation Institute indicate an 88% increase in incidence of the disease in the United States since a similar 1972 estimate. This approximates a total annual loss of $64 million to the swine industry.
