Multi-Purpose Mats To Help Scouring Piglets & Provide Feedback To Sows Prefarrow



How can Compost-A-Mats clear up scouring litters?
  • Upon identifying scouring piglets, place a Compost-A-Mat directly under a heat lamp in the farrowing crate.
  • This will create a clean and warm area for piglets to dry up and help overall farrowing house performance.
  • The Compost-A-Mat should remain in the crate for seven days or until piglets have stopped scouring.
  • At this point, the Compost-A-Mat will contain fecal material and can be broken down for feedback.

ParaSail® by Newport Laboratories
Newport Laboratories is excited to offer ParaSail®, the swine industry's first avirulent live, single-dose vaccine for Haemophilus parasuis.

Available exclusively through veterinarians, ParaSail® is backed by more than five years of research and development. In field safety studies conducted at three independent farms, pigs vaccinated with ParaSail were free from adverse reactions 99.345% of the time.

The USDA has approved ParaSail for use as a single-dose product in pigs 21 days of age or over, with a 1mL intramuscular dose size.

H. parasuis continues to become more and more prevalent in U.S. swine herds. The most recent report from the USDA National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS) revealed that the incidence of H. parasuis is on the rise, with a 230% increase in nursery pig incidence and a 340% increase in grower/finisher pig incidence from 2000 to 2006.

Armor-Grout™

ARMOR-GROUT™ is a specially designed VSC epoxy resin with exceptionally high chemical resistance and bonding properties that is combined with a unique VSC blend of natural silica aggregates. The product forms an overlay for severely worn concrete surfaces in pig facilities. It is primarily used to restore heavily worn slats and pads around wet/dry feeders. Site evaluations conducted since 2006 have shown that ARMOR-GROUT™ withstands heavy pig traffic and is virtually unaffected by the corrosive compounds that form around the feeders. This trowel-applied mortar re-shapes the pads or slats providing for protection and proper drainage.
