Tracking Morbidity and Mortality in Swine

Share

The Ontario’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) and the University of Guelph used Magpi (formerly EpiSurveyor) to track mortality and morbidity rates of high-risk swine raising operations in rural Canada. Producers with more traditional approaches to breeding are less likely to fully employ biosecurity measures, benefit from veterinary laboratory diagnosis, or have access to prompt information. Low-cost collection and analysis of data on a weekly basis allowed these farmers to quickly report outbreaks and access local veterinary services.
