For several reasons, porcine colonic spirochaetosis
(PCS) could be called 'treacherous' for pork producers. Most of the time, the
disease's symptoms are difficult to observe, nor does the disease attract
attention by extreme numbers of casualties. However, when present in a herd, PCS
does have a definite effect on the pigs' performance. If medicated, research
reveals, the benefitcost of controlling could be 8.8:1.
