Respiratory infections and Mortality on the Pig Farm

Once the rain sets in, strange things happen on a pig farm sporadically; a cough here and there, and if your unlucky a dead pig. This disease is highly contagious and spreads rapidly in a piggery if left untreated.

Here are symptoms of these respiratory issues for pigs.

  • Coughing

  • loss of weight

  • reluctance to eat

  • dull looking

  • paralysis

After a few days of experiencing any of the above symptoms the afflicted pig could die.

Experience has proven Tylosin to be the most effective treatment in this scenario although plantain stems seem to be a good herbal remedy.
