We are evolving to move forward together in the prevention and control of swine erysipelas

Did you know that…?

Did you know that according to several studies the bacteria Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae is found asymptomatically in 30-50% of apparently healthy pigs in both white and Iberian pigs1?

Did you know that swine erysipelas, is one of the 200 globally distributed zoonoses recognized by the WHO2? It is a disease transmissible from pigs to humans.

The swine erysipelas is a re-emerging disease that causes great economic losses.

What does it mean not to have a specific vaccination plan against erysipelas?

Not having a disease control plan means having less average daily weight gain, having worse feed conversion rates, keeping animals longer in feedlots. And it also causes more expenses in antibiotic medications and a higher risk of seizures.

Why is it important to vaccinate against erysipelas? Know the advantages!

Vaccinating against erysipelas helps prevent and control the disease.

Pigs vaccinated against erysipelas, both piglets and sows, have better zootechnical indexes compared to non-vaccinated animals. Thus, in the first case, piglets get a higher Average Daily Gain, a lower Conversion Index and a reduction of lameness, which justifies the economic return of vaccination. In breeding sows, the same thing happens: the weaning-oestrus interval is reduced and the farrowing rate, the number of total births and the number of live births increase.

Vaccinate contributes to the One Health movement, from Syva we promote an integrated approach to the health of people, animals and the environment.
