I truly believe some strains of this bacterium are pathogenic for piglets and can cause diarrhea and reduced growth rate; however, we do not know yet how to identify them!
Ib Borup Pedersen27-oct-2015The reason that C. perfringens type A, is a bigger problem in herds today, is ONE REASON alone. I have for 3 years fed my sows on NON-GM soya, and no sprayed down grains. and we have not seen this diarrhoea AT ALL for this period. we tryed to use GMO soy for a week again, and the diarrhoea returned straight oway. The explanation is that Roundup-Residues in the feed, Glyphosate ( A patented antibiotic)is sufficient in the feed to upset the ballance of the gut microflora, Coli, Clostridies, streptocokkus etc, are seveal hundred times more tolerant to Glyphosate than lactic acid bacteries and other good not pathogene bacteries. The University of Århus has looked into my findings and have made this rapport: http://goo.gl/D4P2KS
There is lots more on the Glyphosate front, I also found it to make Deformed offspring, raising vith dose, and fewer pigs born pr litter when higher levels of glyphosate in the food. it is all in this link: http://goo.gl/wUXTus

The effectiveness of human resources (workforce), measured as weaned per worker, is much higher in big than in small farms.
Steve Webster03-ene-2013Interesting article. We've been looking at labour efficiency on UK pig farms but have used hours of work per 100 piglets weaned rather than hours of work per sow. One of the major differences we see is between farm ownership - with groups of farms under the same ownership operating at very similar levels.
In the U.S., the individual gestation stall for sows is being banned based on perception, not science, and that has Janeen Salak-Johnson, a University of Illinois associate professor in animal science, looking for answers as what is best for the sow from a welfare standpoint. In fact, she believes the decisions being made on the legislative front are premature and could possibly put sows in a welfare compromised situation.
r.segundo02-oct-2012I have seen your video "Science before legislation". Im rather surprized your focused on open stalls, for a solution to the welfare legislation. We in Spain have worke for close to 10 years with Electronic Sow Feeding Stations, and we have a 3300 sow school farm we would like you to vist, to understand the dinamics of large groups. we are seeing equal or better results with this system.
