      Sylvain Messier, DVM, IPSAVDemeter Services Vétérinaires Inc.

      Combined with tailored individual treatment (versus mass treatment), the early detection of sick pigs reduces production costs, ensures a more appropriate use on antibiotics (minimising antibiotic resistance), increases respect for animal welfare and leads to the production of value-added pigs (raised without antibiotics). You will learn what methods the best producers use to minimise the number of sick pigs and maximise treatment success.
