The article reports that a survey by Janseen Animal Health has found that pig farmers in Great Britain want to know more about batch farrowing. The survey which covered holdings with more than 48,000 sows found that many farmers have switched to batch farrowing within the past two years suggesting they became aware of its benefits in helping fight disease--particularly wasting disease, says Janseen's Phil MacDonald. Information is presented on the Aivlosin antibiotic from ECO Animal Health for the pig industry.
