Summary

HYPOTHESES – WORK IN PROGRESS
A proportion of piglets that are diagnosed as crushed have other potential underlying predisposing factors such as poor nutritional state, low birth weight or infectious diseases.

Poor health status, nutritional stage and high parity of the sow will increase the piglet mortality rates.

There is a significant difference of pre weaning mortality and causes of death both regarding the temporal distribution and in the individual variations between the farms.
