Relationships between weight, head morphology-assessed IUGR status and survival in commercial piglet production

Production improvements in the global swine industry have been partly produced by increasing selection for hyperprolific sows, resulting in larger litter sizes while also increasing the variation in piglet birthweight. This has increased the number of small and/or undersized piglets, which have been exposed to differing degrees of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). Most IUGR piglets are classified as being of low birth weight, however, there is large variation in weight of both non-IUGR and IUGR piglets.

Herd level risk factors for stomach ulcers in finishing pigs

The influence of feed structure and pelleting on the development of gastric ulcers in pigs is well established. Some studies have shown a beneficial effect of access to straw on gastric health. However, the role of other factors, e.g. disease and stress, is not well understood. The aim of this study was to identify herd factors associated with a high prevalence of gastric ulcers in finishing pigs.
