THIS disease is widespread in Western Australia and is undoubtedly a most serious source of economic loss to the pig industry.
The effects of virus pneumonia are such that in badly managed herds, widespread pneumonic outbreaks and deaths are common.
By contrast, in well managed herds, there is the more insidious problem of low or nil death rates, accompanied however by an appreciable fall in animal production.
