Buti ka pa jack nasusubaybayan mo mga alaga mo ako wala akong magawa kundi magbigay ng instruction and there's no way for me to know kung lahat ng instruction ko ay nasusunod, just for instance ngayon meron daw 6 na piglets ang nagtatae, ang tanong bakit nagtae ang sagot sa akin ng caretaker dahil daw sa panahon dahil bigla biglang nagbabago? i didn't bought his excuse, instead i told my caretaker na ang main reason why scouring is occuring is because of negligence, kapabayaan that's the main reason why there is always scouring. kung hindi mapapabayaan ang pig pen, kung hindi mapapabayaan ang mga kulig na makakain ng marumi o makainom ng marumi none of it will happen di po ba? but i just can't do anything kasi hindi naman sa kanila yong piggery ano ba kung magkandapeste ang alaga nila, hindi naman kanila yon at sumusuweldo naman sila diba? not if kung may malasakit ka at pagmamahal sa iyong trabaho at alaga gagawin mo ang lahat not for the sake of money but for the success of fullfilling your responsibilities...am i right folks?? hu hu nakakaiyak kapag wala kang magawa sa sarili mong alaga.. - tanong nga po, ano po ba ang maganda sa mga kulig na nagtatae? tulong nga po...
nagtatae or scouring of piglet is also know as diarrhoea describe the excretion of faeces containing excess fluid. Depending on the cause of the scours, The hard-working digestive system is responsible for the intake and digestion of food, absorption of nutrients and the excretion of waste material. Pathogenic strains of certain bacteria (those capable of causing disease) and non pathogenic bacteria, are normal inhabitants of specific sections of the gut. Some organisms assist in the breakdown of feed and the production of nutrients. Changes to the gastrointestinal environment may upset the balance between gut and bacteria. In turn, the secretion of fluids and Minerals into the stomach and gut, the rate of passage of food through the system and the ability to digest and resorb nutrients, water and Minerals are also affected. An upset in the digestive system is frequently observed as scours.
Types of scours
This type type can be caused by a change in quality, texture and maybe quantity of feed, especially if your doing floor feeding on your sow tiny piglet is a bit naughty and will try some..also toxic elements in either the feed or water, insufficient iron after birth (complications with intestinal infections).
Escherichia coli (E. coli) or coliform scours. Salmonellosis
Swine fever, transmissible gastro-enteritis are thought to be involved in some scours.
A heavy burden of internal parasites such as gastro-intestinal worms or coccidiosis can produce scours in pigs.
The bacterial population in farrowing pens is reduced by cleaning, disinfecting.
ensuring that piglets receive colostrum early in life
vaccinating sows with E. coli vaccine before farrowing
This can be reduced for young pigs by providing a warm dry creep area
temporarily reducing the sows feed intake by 30% if scouring at 2 to 3 weeks occurs; the piglets get less milk and there is less burden on their gut.
Treatment of scours
1..Use antidiarrhoeal agents such as bentonite or kaolin clay to protect the gut wall.
2..Replace minerals and fluids lost through scouring by adding minerals to the drinking water.
3..Reduce the population of bacteria in the gut with antibacterial agents (avoid drug abuse as resistance will develop).
4..To reduce the severity of scours at 2 to 3 weeks of age, temporarily restrict the sows feed intake by 30%.
5..Restricting feed for 12 hours may help scouring on piglets.
6..If pens are grossly contaminated with bacteria move the pigs to a cleaner pen.
Provide a heat source as warmth is beneficial.
power to the flying pork!
