Economic impact of Circovac-vaccination in a PCV2 subclinically infected farm in Switzerland on performance parameters


Sidler, X; Kurmann, J; Brugnera, E; Sydler, T (2012). Economic impact of Circovac-vaccination in a PCV2 subclinically infected farm in Switzerland on performance parameters. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 154(10):451-455.

Abstract

Vaccination of dams in a PCV2 subclinically infected farm 2 and 4 weeks before insemination, with a booster at 12 weeks of gestation did not influence fertility parameters of the dams. However, growth parameters of offspring of vaccinated sows improved significantly (+ 51 g/d), resulting in a shorter growing period of 9 days and a massively improved economy. Mortality of weaners and fattening pigs was not significantly influenced by dam vaccination. Nevertheless, compared to a period of 6 months before vaccination, the mortality rate declined in the weaning period by 0,3 % and in the fattening period by 5,5 %. The Return on Investment (ROI) was calculated with 1:9.5. Even, the historically low pork prices in 2011 led to a ROI of 1:7.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
