Decreasing swine mortality still tends to be the largest opportunity for farmers to increase overall profitability, which is why it is important that we understand all the factors that play into herd health. Dr. Chris Rademacher and I address this issue in today’s episode and talk about methods that can increase disease preparedness and what is necessary to start your nursery pigs off properly.

“We will always have some sort of disease status in our industry, so it’s really more about coming up with ways to manage around that.” – Dr. Chris Rademacher
