  • The herd also tests negative for Salmonella Species.
  • All production herd animals are vaccinated for Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS), Circovirus and Swine Influenza Virus (SIV).
  • The breeding herd is wormed with Ivomec and vaccinated for Leptospirosis, Erysipelas and PRRS prior to breeding.
  • Young research swine receive iron at three days of age. They are vaccinated for Rhinitis, Mycoplasma and Hemophilus Pneumonia, and are wormed with Fenbendazole at weaning.
  • The pigs continue to receive Fenbendazole every four weeks until they grow out of the sales inventory weight range, which prevents internal parasite infestation and larval migration.
