While Edema (Oedema) disease is a major economic problem in many pig herds, the Shigatoxin-vaccination provides a breakthrough solution. Nevertheless, many farm managers ask themselves: "Is vaccination against Shigatoxin in my farm worth it?"

The answer comes from the COIN calculator which is provided free of charge by IDT.
COIN is an acronym that stands for “Calculate Online your Individual Netprofit”.

In addition to the psychological pressure from the large number of dead pigs, farms with moderate to severe outbreaks of Edema (Oedema) Disease also experience a financial disaster. The increased mortality rate and decreased growth performance as well as amplified veterinary consultancy and increased treatment with antimicrobials contribute to an in total reduced net profit. Additionally, very often an expensive diet feeding is required.
Though restrictive feeding to avoid the worst, the growth performance of piglets is impacted and the sales weight is decreased. Consequently, the rearing time is prolonged and the feed conversion deteriorates. So even in cases with slightly increased mortality farms suffer from financial cuts.

Since the introduction of the vaccine in 2013, "one herb has grown" against the edema disease. Since then, many veterinarians and producer report the economic benefits and performance improvements due to the Shigatoxin-vaccination. Find their statements below.

If you would like to know whether the investment pays for the vaccination and the economic benefits of the vaccine against the Edema (Oedema) Disease on your farm, you can calculate this in just a few steps with the help of the COIN.
