Abstract

The financial impact of an epizootic of transmissible gastroenteritis in pigs was evaluated in a California sow herd through estimating growth, feed, and profit functions. Two groups of pigs were studied: pigs born before and surviving the epizootic (epizootic [E] pigs), and pigs born after the epizootic (postepizootic [PE] pigs). Short-term profits were maximized at 165 days for both groups of pigs, ranging from $47.14 for female E pigs to $60.32 for male PE pigs. Accordingly, it was concluded that pigs surviving or born shortly after a transmissible gastroenteritis epizootic are profitable to raise, if raised under management conditions similar to those in the study herd.
