Swine Disease Prevention: The Role of Organic Acids

Antibiotic Reduction Expert Series

Thank you for joining our session on January 13, 2021 exploring 'Swine Disease Prevention: The Role of Organic Acids.'

Several of the main gut diseases in pigs are caused by Gram-negative pathogenic bacteria such as E.coli, Lawsonia, Brachyspira and Salmonella. Contaminated feed can be a vector for disease in herds.    

Fortunately, the prevalence of pathogenic bacteria in pig feed can be reduced by the use of organic acidsIn the gastrointestinal tract, organic acids play an essential role in disease prevention, positively influence the gut microbiota and improve gut health.   

Disease prevent which leads to antibiotic reduction in swine operations must rely on a holistic approach that includes biosecurity, management, stress reduction and the use of feed additives based on organic acids i.e. Biotronic® Top3 

Main Topics

  • Role of microbiome and pathogenome in the gut of pigs 
  • Management tools and strategic interventions to prevent the outbreak of bacterial disease 
  • How to decontaminate pig feed using organic acids
  • How Biotronic® Top line products reduce Salmonella, Lawsonia and Brachyspira in swine
