sulfa, pork, antibiotics
Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering
Sulfa products and other antibiotics have been widely used in Missouri’s swine industry for promoting growth and for reducing disease problems and death in pigs. UMC Guide G2353, “Antibiotics and other additives for swine,” outlines some suggested practices and performance benefits that result from incorporating approved products into swine feeds. Table 1 shows a summary of experiments using antibiotics as growth promoters for young pigs. Improvements in performance have been consistent. Pork producers need to comply with regulations and avoid losing these tools in their production systems.
