Reason for variability of vaccination protocols between swine farms?
Vx are used for the various diseases present - if the Dz does not exist on the farm, there is little reason to Vx
Components of atrophic rhinitis vaccine?
Bortetella bronchisepticum bactrin and Pasteurella multocida type D toxoid
Timing of E. coli and C. perf type C vaccines for primiparous prefarrowing?
2 vaccinations, 3 and 6 weeks prior to farrowing
Preweaning vaccines if weaned at 4 weeks of age or older?
Atrophic rhinitis and Erysipelas a week before and 2 weeks after weaning
Parvo Virus vaccine?
For a ubiquitous organism; colostral immunity can last up to 8 months - this interferes w/ vaccine response; Gilts should be exposed to sow feces early to obtain naturally acquired immunity

MLV should not be used in pregnant animals; virus will spread from vaccinated animals to non-vaccinated animals. Give this similarly to lepto and parvo to prevent reproductive losses
Sow and preparturient gilt deworming?
Perform prior to farrowing and in early gestation if animals are in a contaminated environment

External parasite prevention in sows and preparturient gilts?
Before farrowng to reduce piglet exposure
