Dear Mr. Papatsiros
Good article about ear necrosis syndrome in weaning pigs associated with PCV2 infection. My Name is Werner Lichtendahl, I come from Germany.

We reduce the Endotoxine Level in Blood (tested by Blood Samples) and we reduce the Inflamatoric Action of Endotoxine in Cells. In this Way the Pigs and Piglets stay healthy

Hi. Interesting article about ear necrosis syndrome in weaning pigs. Can you tell me what feed additives were added? In our own barn we have a big Ear Tip Necrosis Problm.
We would like to solve it.

Mr. Papatsiros, thank you for the article about PENS associated with PCV2 infection.

I would like to ask Mr. Lichtendahl a question about the feed additives. What kind of additives are you using? Recently I have read something about humic acid. Are you familiar with that?
