Disease Eradication

Chris Richards & Associates have implemented successful eradication programs for Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, sarcoptic mange and Swine dysentry on both intensive and outdoor units ranging from 100 to 1300 sows.


We have also been involved in total depopulation programs for these pathogens and Actinobacillus pleuropneumonae.


We work closely with a number of contract growers to ensure available housing for grower pigs during the depopulation program.


Partial budgets can be prepared for producers contemplating an eradication program.


A production plan including re-stocking and gilt introductions, biosecurity and marketing strategies for depopulations also form part of the disease eradication services.
