Abstract

Some of the heaviest losses incurred by the pig industry are caused by diseases affecting sows just prior to, or immediately after, the birth of their litters. Most of the wastage is caused by the birth of dead or weakly piglets or the loss of litters due to the subsequent failure of the sows to provide an adequate milk supply.
