Risk factors associated with the different categories of piglet perinatal mortality in French farms

  • 2017

F. Pandolfi, S.A. Edwards, F. Robert, I. Kyriazakis

Highlights

•Piglet mortality was studied on a sample of French pig farms.
•Six main categories of mortality represented 84.5% of all the perinatal deaths.
•Different risk factors were identified for different categories of death.
•Three perinatal mortality patterns were identified amongst the sample of pig farms.
•Identification of the perinatal mortality patterns could lead to a more targeted management.

The sustainable intensification of animal production systems is increasing as a consequence of increased demand for foods originating from animals. Production diseases are particularly endemic in intensive production systems, and can negatively impact upon farm animal welfare. There is an increasing need to develop policies regarding animal production diseases, sustainable intensification, and animal welfare which incorporate consumer priorities as well as technical assessments of farm animal welfare. Consumers and/or citizens may have concerns about intensive production systems, and whether animal production disease represent a barrier to consumer acceptance of their increased use.
