Artificial insemination (AI) has been in use for decades, but only recently has the technique gained popularity in pig production. There are many advantages to using AI in swine including the fact that it can be used in place of stocking and funding a breeding boar herd. It also contains less risk of disease transmission, increases breed diversity, genetics, and quality of boar semen, at lower costs than natural breeding. Neogen recognizes these cost savings opportunities and offers a wide range of products to help support your bottom line.
Castration in the swine industry decreases aggression in pigs and helps control off odors from sexually mature male pigs. During puberty, these odors are produced and can be unpleasant and off-putting to pork consumers. With Neogen’s complete line of castration tools, you can rest assured that off odors will not be an issue in your pork and your customers will continue to have a pleasant pork experience.
The first line of defense against unwanted pathogens is your BioSecurity protocol. Neogen provides top of the line cleaners and disinfectants to meet your needs and keep your barns pathogen free.
Swine operations contain varying surfaces that require precise cleaning and disinfecting formulations to maintain its integrity as well as create a clean environment. From hard surfaces to equipment, foot baths, and general premises, Neogen carries the products you need.
For high organic loads, reach for Neogen’s foaming or non-foaming alkaline cleaners. If hard water and scale build-up is your problem, then there is nothing better than our line of acidic foamers and washers. However, don’t forget the disinfection process. Neogen’s extensive line of disinfecting products will help keep your farms free of the most dangerous pathogens, including PEDv, PRRSv, and Clostridial spp.
Handling any number of animals is no simple task. From sorting a weaning room, to guiding a 300 pound sow to another pen, animal safety and ethical handling is always a concern. Neogen’s line of handling products withstand the test of time and include durable products with gripping, ergonomic, and quick release features that will help keep you and your herd safe.
Developing a herd identification management system can become ever so cumbersome as you grow your swine herd. Using multiple tools in conjunction with each other may quickly become a reality, so it’s important to know what identification tools Neogen has available. For example, shortly after farrowing, you can utilize a number of unique U and V shaped ear notchers, each designed with user and animal friendly concepts in mind. In addition, Neogen can provide the right fit for your operation with our line of markers, tattooers, notchers, and taggers.
Flies and roaches are universally known to be harbingers of disease and disease transmission. On a swine farm, biosecurity should always be top of mind through the use of wash in/wash out stations, boot baths, and truck washes. Insect control is another major step in ensuring farms remain pathogen free.With Neogen’s broad line of insecticides, from fogger, misters, and sprays, to dust, dips, wipe-ons, and pour-ons, Neogen has your operation covered. Our effective, long-lasting insecticides have applications for premise treatments or direct animal application. With this range of diversity, you can rest assured that your pest control will be top notch.
Through mass medication or pen specific therapeutic intervention, Neogen has just what you need for identifying who got what. Our paints and dyes are highly visible, long-lasting, weather and fade resistant, and non-toxic to animals and the environment. To provide an extra layer of convenience, our paints and dyes are now available in a combined vaccinator and marker as well as inverted spraying canisters.
A stray needle in a carcass or cut of meat can be costly and damaging to the producers or packers reputation. That is why broken needles are a major concern in the pork industry and to Neogen. In a highly physically intense environment as seen on a farm, needles are exposed to much more stress than in a human hospital, for example.
With Neogen’s line of highly durable, detectable, and dependable needles, you can rest assured that if your needles do break, your reputation won’t. Our needles are six times more durable than the conventional needle and highly resistant to breakage. However, if you do find yourself with a broken needle, the patented stainless steel alloy makes it up to 100% detectable verse the 15% detectability seen with standard needles. With that assurance, you know that your reputation is safe in Neogen’s hands.
A healthy hog is a happy hog, and Neogen’s oral supplements for swine help keep them that way. To aid in hydration, Neogen offers Ideal Animal Health Vi-tal, a water vitamin, electrolyte and mineral supplement for hogs 25 lbs or more. NeogenVet Aspirin Powder is also available and is an oral analgesic and fever reducer.
Moving a 300 pound sow from the farrowing room to the open floor isn’t always an easy task, but with Neogen’s diverse line of handling tools, we can make it easy for you. Designed for durability, easy grip, and fast catch and release, Neogen’s panels, paddles, and poles will provide you with a smooth transition from one room to another.
When working with livestock, rodents will not be far away. Areas of feed, water, and even dry places will attract mice and rats. Why would such a small creature be a concern to the swine industry? Rodents are known to carry and spread diseases, consume large amounts of feed and water, and cause major structural damage to equipment and buildings.
Determining your operation’s needs is paramount when implementing a successful rodent control program. Differing presentations, from bait stations to manual feeding, including pellets, nuggets, blocks, liquid baits and meal baits, creates a lot to choose from. However, with Neogen’s comprehensive line of rodent control products, developing a rodent control program specifically with your operation in mind just became easy. Neogen supplies the market with a wide range of products including quick knock down and weather resistant options, extreme palatability, and both anticoagulants and non-anticoagulants. Humane options and less toxic to non-targeted animals are also available.
Mass-vaccinating or medicating to prevent or treat a disease outbreak can be incredibly stressful if you lose track of which pigs have been treated or if they received the correct dose. Fortunately, Neogen provides specialized tools to prevent this stress from occurring in the first place.
Supplying the market with consistent quality, convenient, and safe syringes, Neogen can answer your injectable and drencher needs. Our Prima syringes are continuously tested in the field and laboratory to ensure long-lasting performance and reliability. Prima syringes are highly customizable to fit any aspect of your operation, from automatic refilling to simultaneous injection and marketing of treated pigs.
