Stalosan application in the farrowing unit

After wash for desiccation and disinfection, possibly using blower or mini loader for application, before letting in sows for farrowing. During the washing process, the risk of infection is spread around the unit, which is why reducing the risk of infection is both deadly and inhibiting to pathogens (Norm Miner).

At farrowing, consider “breading” the piglets (except for heads due to toxicity testing showing eye irritation) to ensure drying, pH neutral disinfection of skin and umbilical cord (reduction of subsequent umbilical hernia). IF NOT:

After farrowing, consider applying Stalosan F (3–4 large handfuls in the creep boxes, possibly together with other bedding while isolating the pigs (for instance using plates) during the cleaning of the pen after farrowing (afterbirth, stillborn pigs, etc.).

Daily application in farrowing pens under sows (possibly mini loader) to combat E. coli infection from dirty udders and any udder rot in good lactating sows, etc. In creep boxes, and if there are solid and slatted floors, the solid floor should be dried/disinfected to teach piglets to soil the slats. It can make the work easier, both in the farrowing pens and later in weaning/controlled-environment houses, when the pigs defecate and urinate in the right areas.

To reduce the risk of infection, use Stalosan F under the sow when it spills drinking water, among other things because Stalosan F remains active even when soaked.

Sows with pigs at 7 kg (15.4 pounds). – 2,07 kg (4.56 pounds) per sow per year

It is presumed that the treated area is 3m2 corresponding to a farrowing pen. The piglets are weaned at 4 weeks and the treatment starts 3 days in a row and once a week after. That means 6 treatments per litter. One year old sow have 2.3 litters per year. 50 g x 3 m2 x 6 treatments x 2.3 litters = 2.07 kg per sow per year (4.56 pounds).

With 25 piglets per sow per year this corresponds to 83 grams (0.182 pounds) per weaned pig.
