Postweaning diarrhea (PWD) is a serious threat to the economic success of the swine industry both due to losses as a result of mortalities and due to the reduced growth performance of surviving pigs. It is estimated that 50% of piglet mortality due to diarrhea is attributable to the causative agent of PWD, enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC).

CONT

On some farms post-weaning scours due to E.coli persists despite vaccination, aggressive use of antibiotics, and improved facility sanitation.

Très coûteuse, cette maladie ne fait pas que retarder la croissance des animaux, mais elle peut causer jusqu'à 10 % de mortalité dans les troupeaux affectés.
