Infectious causes of infertility in sows
Metadata[+] Show full item record
"Any severe illness in a pregnant sow may result in fetal death due to a disruption in the normal uterine environment. One, several or all fetuses in a litter may be lost. If fetal compromise occurs at less than 35 days of gestation, fetuses may be reabsorbed. If infection occurs between 35 and 70 days of gestation, fetal mummification occurs. If infection occurs after 70 days of gestation, pigs may be delivered weak or dead. This publication addresses several infectious causes of infertility and abortion in sows along with some preventive measures."
