How Prevention Works

World-class vaccines

Preventing disease through vaccination plays a pivotal role in the management of swine health. Effective vaccination programs help keep pigs healthy and productive thus optimizing resource utilization and reducing the need for antibiotic treatments.

Our extensive expertise in vaccination and swine health is augmented by state-of-the-art diagnostic technology at our global diagnostic centres, in Ames, Iowa (USA), Shanghai Taizu (China) and Hanover (Germany).
