Herd Health
& Facilities

Health Status

S&S Farms has maintained a closed herd since its inception in 1987. Our herds are serologically monitored quarterly and are free from PEDv, PRRS, APP, TGE, Mycoplasma, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis, Brucellosis, Psuedorabies and most common swine diseases. We also screen regularly for parasites common to swine. Quarterly health monitoring reports are available upon request.

Additionally, relationships are maintained with licensed veterinaries who provide regularly scheduled visits and ensure all animals are healthy and fit for delivery.

Our facilities are inspected annually by the U.S.D.A. and inspection reports are available upon request. Health monitoring is performed quarterly and the results can be found here.

Vaccinations & Parasite Control Program

S&S Farms has a preventative vaccination and anthelmintic program in place. A copy of this program is available upon request. All pigs upon delivery are accompanied with a vaccination history and other information relative to each individual pig.

Facilities

S&S Farms facilities are designed for providing the best environment for producing high health status pigs. S&S Farms utilizes many of the same facility features from the commercial swine industry. The animal environment is climate controlled through zone heating, evaporative cooling and variable ventilation rates. Feed and water systems are monitored for quality and quantity on a daily basis. Humidity, temperature, and air quality are monitored constantly. Alarm systems are in place to alert for power loss or temperatures out of defined ranges. Facilities are equipped with backup water and power supplies. In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and be efficient all of our on site electrical needs at our California facility are met through solar power.
