Recommended Posts

I used Betagro feed. I just checked on the web and they have a subsidiary company in Laos (ph. +856 20 59 977 266) Betagro (Lao) Company Limited. Try them.

Hi Issan Aussi

 

thanks a lot. I will try it. We sell for about 2 years feed for animals from Khrungthai company. Lao farmers a bit different to Thai farmers. About 20 to 30 years back in time. So I will say it like in Germany... What the farmer not know they wont eat it. That's a bit the problem. But let's try.

 

Thanks to you all

German farmer

The symptoms worry me. I would get the government Livestock guys in as quick as possible, just in case.

maybe the dead pig had been dead for some time, 12 plus hours? this could be why you see purple patches and the black  dry? blood...  its very hot at the mo, this could be the course of death,also it will/could put the pigs of there feed, do you have good ventalition, sprayers could be a cheap fix to help cool the animals?

the wifes farm is an evap farm, outside temp 40 plus most days, inside farm temp 28 front 30 at the back, it is still hot for the sows, i can see a drop in feed intake this time of year, also have heard of a lot of farms (same set up of the wifes) have sows dieing at higher then normal rates....

 

ASF is the worry at the mo, have a read up on it.... try and stop people or animals getting any where near the pig house...  if you see more dead pigs...... contact the government livestock departmnent like mentioned above.

I have lost pigs to scorpions before. The locals have demonstrated that the hair on a pig killed by scorpions becomes very loose. You can just pull it out.

Hang on. Vietnam has culled 2 million pigs due to swine flue. Source is Reuters and is on the front page Bangkok Post.
