Help prevent economic losses from piglet diarrhea.

If you’re dealing with continual outbreaks of scours in young piglets – despite vaccination – there may be several issues involved. Your operation may have bacterial or viral strains that aren’t part of the antigenic shift coverage by the commercial vaccine. Partnering with Vaxxinova, you will have access to innovative, custom-made vaccines based on the specific needs of your herd. Additionally, with the latest launch of our patented SRP® technology, producers can achieve a higher level of protection with fewer isolates.
