Mortality and bacterial set backs of baby pigs represent a huge economic loss to swine producers in the United States, It is estimated that 10-20 per cent of the live pigs die before weaning age, and the average swine producer in the United States markets only 7 pigs per litter. The producer knows that large litters must be farrowed, reared and marketed for good profits. Once large, thrifty pigs are farrowed, perhaps the most difficult task confronting the producer is the job of keeping the pigs thrifty and alive. Thus, the prevention of disease and bacterial set backs are of great importance for good profits in the swine business.
