Risk factors for the different causes of piglet neonatal mortality in French farms

Neonatal mortality is one of the main issues of concern for the pig industry worldwide, resulting in decreased sow performance and significant economic loss. Although the issue of neonatal mortality has been explored previously, the variability in methodology makes it difficult to reach general conclusions. The relative proportions of each cause of death need to be identified.

Influence of gestation housing system on sow health and the transfer of maternal  immunity to the neonate

Although the conventional housing on slatted floor remains predominant in European pig farms, a variety
 of alternative housing systems exists for gestating sows. The consequences of these different environments 
on health of the mothers and on the immunity they transfer to their progeny remain  poorly known.
