FRANCE - Mange (Sarcoptes Scabiei var. suis) is an important disease impacting pig herd productivity but, thanks to the ARPEGE eradication programme, pig farms can now be mange free.

The ARPEGE programme is based on safety measures and a programme of Ivermectin. All animals on farm must be included in the programme for it to work successfully.

A study of the programme showed that after the ARPEGE programme was implemented, scratching in sows and dermatitis in fatteners all decreased.
