note = {The developed concept based on results of an experimental and empirical study of four fattening periods conducted at 20 pig farms in Southeast Bavaria. 10,226 pigs were assessed on porcine respiratory disease complex (PRDC) health status through different parameters. 587 blood samples were collected at slaughter and analyzed with ELISA serological tests on five pathogens associated with PRDC. Technical performance data of 78 fattening periods were available.
A new serological indicator (SI) was developed, summarizing the overall sera reactivity per herd by one value and indicating the farm pathogen pressure. The SI enabled a benchmark of farms on the pathogen pressure. The value of the SI was significant correlated with defined KPIs. KPIs were the respiratory health status, usage of antibiotics, clinical symptoms, average daily growth rate, feed conversion rate and gross margin per stable place. The two most relevant pathogens influencing the KPIs were porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus and Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serotype 2.
The designed benchmark based on two new KPIs, technical performance and respiratory health. The benchmark enabled an inter-organizational benchmark of fattening period as well as an intra-organizational benchmark of the members of the cooperative. In order to continuously improve animal health and thus to improve the defined KPIs, the developed controlling concept based on four elements: (1) regional defined pathogen pattern (2) serological indicator and farm specific serological profile (3) organizational merging of data in a two dimensional benchmark of animal health and technical performance (4) interpretation guide through the developed enzootic risk matrix.},
