Slaughter Check Example

Slaughter Checks

Abattoir Monitoring of pigs is essential for surveillnce of disease and to monitor subclinical signs of disease. Results must be correlated with other tools such as production records, post mortems on farm, clinical signs and observations on farm. This information can be used to revise vaccination, medication and production practices.


A detailed report (see left) is given on each slaughter check, with comparisons to previous checks. recomendations are then given based upon observations, pathology testing and on farm evaluation.


Unlike similar services offered by others, this service is performed by pig veterinarians who have an understanding of all the health and production issues relating to your specific farm and pigs.


Abattoir monitoring is included in the Partnership Program.
