Minimize Exposure and Maximize Immunity

bivi-nc13-fanoA systematic whole herd approach to controlling all types of swine respiratory diseases hinges on the two-pronged effort of minimizing exposure and maximizing immunity.

Dr. Eduardo Fano, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica‘s technical manager for the Americas, explained the approach during the North Carolina Health Seminar for producers on Friday. “You can do it through the whole production/infection chain,” said Dr. Fano. “What you do in the gilts is going to be good for the piglets, for example.”

Dr. Fano says the concept of the production/infection chain is not new. “We are putting together old knowledge with new knowledge,” he said. “We are proposing this as an automatic way to think when we are managing disease.”
