NETHERLANDS - Is is almost always beneficial to vaccinate pigs with the CIRCOVAC vaccination, even when only low clinical symptoms are observed, explained a veterinarian working in the Netherlands.

After findings of PCV2 circulating in piglets in the fattening unit, CIRCOVAC was trialed in a group of piglets at weaning.

The vaccinated pigs showed better growth, less mortality and better health overall compared to the unvaccinated groups.
