Infection could disrupt milk secretion and predispose to postpartum dysgalactia

However, excess body weight at last phase of gestation leads to reproductive disorders such as farrowing difficulties, more stillborn piglets (Zaleski and Hacker, 1993), postpartum dysgalactia
, and higher culling rate due to locomotion difficulties (Dourmad et al.
MMA is known now as postpartum dysgalactia
On the other hand, excess body fat at the end of gestation leads to farrowing difficulties and more stillborn piglets (Zaleski and Hacker, 1993), postpartum dysgalactia
and higher culling rate due to locomotion difficulties (Martineau and Klopfenstein 1996; Dourmad et al.
Estimation of variance components for postpartum dysgalactia

During recent years, the terminology "postpartum dysgalactia syndrome (PDS)" in sows has been defined and being intensively investigated (Klopfenstein et al.
