One of the main sources of economic loss in the pig industry is the high degree of mortality in young pigs. A study of the four pig crop reports from December, 1951, to June, 1953, shows that no less than 22 per cent, of the average litter of 8.8 pigs in Western Australia were lost before reaching the weaner stage.
