To give the shots or not...that is the question?...

Post by jawork32 » Wed Apr 07, 2021 8:49 am

We are fairly new to the pig business and have a general question...When we started with bred gilts we asked around different breeders and got a list of different shots and such to give...

At processing we have giving Respisure one, Draxxin 25 and Excede...

My wife is more of the only give it if they need it when it comes to the antibiotics...so just curious on what others are doing at that young age. Thanks.

vaccines and antibiotics and day and night difference.

A robust vaccine program is common sense and antibiotics should be used as needed.

consult with your consulting vet on programs.

Do you have a vet that is very knowledgeable on pigs? Where I live there are no vets that know the first thing about them. They took the minimum amount of classes on pigs during school. I would recommend looking up Four Star Veterinary Services. They are located out of Indiana and are great to work with. They can answer all of your questions.
