Swine health – Focus on prevention and infectious diseases
Recent developments in the swine health market are met by Bayer Animal Health's vast portfolio of swine medications. Its products focus on prevention and treatment of infectious diseases as well as improving performance management. In 2013, Bayer Animal Health launched two vaccines in Asia: CSF-E2 marker (prevention of classic swine fever) and AR+rsPMT (prevention of swine progressive Atrophic Rhinitis) in Taiwan and Korea.
Baycox® for the control of coccidiosis and the anti-infective Baytril® are two essential pillars to Bayer's swine health portfolio. Around these key products available in most countries of the region Bayer built up local portfolios to best support producers with solutions along the entire production cycle.
In order to improve health and hygiene management on swine farms, Bayer presented at VIV Asia a special toolbox called 'Lab-on-Wheels'. The unique box offers different tests and diagnosis tools that can easily be used on the farm. This service is being used by Bayer representatives to detect the needs of the respective farm and to offer tailor-made solutions to the producer.

Bayer Animal Health strengthens its presence in Asia with its solutions for poultry health. Adding to its already extensive list of advanced nutraceuticals, Bayer enhances poultry health and performance with Baymix® Grobig BS, Latibon® Plus ME and Toxisorb® to name a few.
