Good transfer of passive immunity from sows to piglets is crucial to ensure piglet survival on pig farms. This book is intended to help veterinary practitioners work towards this goal, and includes a review of the basics of immunology and vaccination, as well as comprehensive chapters on the immunisation programmes used in sows and on the transfer of passive immunity from sows to piglets.
