Manage Diseases Across the Production System Using the Infection Chain™
The Infection Chain™ is designed to help producers and their veterinarians connect epidemiological events between the six phases of swine production. As a systematic approach to disease control, using “chain” thinking helps them, not only identify the disease, but also the underlying causes of disease entry and transmission throughout the herd. Through knowledge of disease-shedding patterns, vertical and horizontal transmission, as well as persistence of infection, diseases can be tracked back to the point of origin and stopped from spreading before they cause more issues within the herds. This comprehensive approach helps to focus on the entire herd, and determine the underlying cause of the problems.Download the Infection Chain™ brochure for more information.
