Abstract

The pig industry nowadays faces more complex diseases than ever before, such as Porcine Multi Systemic Wasting Syndrome and Porcine Respiratory Disease Complex. These disease entities are often caused by multiple infections combined with suboptimal conditions in the field of environment, management, biosecurity climatic conditions and more. Successful preventive plans include the identification of infectious and non infectious factors and preventive interventions based on this. Regarding PMWS, Madec formulated a list of 20 management measures and this was already quite successful in reducing the impact of that syndrome.
