Thank you and Happy New Year!
The goal of each of the veterinarians and members of the clinic support staff at Swine Vet Center is to provide you with the very best in swine health and production services. 2018 will likely present new challenges for our industry. We will continue to work hard to find solutions and are proud to partner with you in the production of safe, nutritious and wholesome pork.

We very much appreciate your business and look forward to earning it in 2018!

"Doing Gilts Right"- The key to top production
One of the things that's consistent among all top farms is proper management of the gilt herd. High gilt production will improve overall farm farrowing rate, total born and weaned average. See more in this month's newsletter.

"Tis the season"... For PRRS
SVC's Drs. Tim Loula and Paul Yeske attended the 2017 North American PRRS Symposium on PRRS, Emerging and Foreign Animal Diseases held in Chicago on December 1-3. This is fast becoming a very international meeting. Information from the Swine Health Information Center was presented. See more by clicking on the link above for this month's newsletter.

Winter Promotion Available through SVC
We're all aware of the role that rodents play in the breakdown of biosecurity on the farm. Make sure you're on top of rodent control. SVC is featuring a special on rodenticides through February . For every $125 in purchases of Jaguar or Hawk Ro-denticides (multiple options-'chunx', pellets, soft bait) you receive one Camo RTIC 20 oz. tumbler. The promo is cumulative for the entire period and we will track your purchases. The tumblers will be delivered to you in March! Just call, fax or email your order as you normally would to our office!

Take the Guesswork out of Body Condition Scoring
The importance of a consistently conditioned sow herd is well known and something top farms are always working on, not only to maxim-ize reproductive efficiency but also to ensure the well-being of the herd. Some of our clients have adopted the use of calipers to deter-mine body condition score and set feed boxes.
