Effective control of ileitis

Pork producers rely on Tylan Soluble (tylosin tartrate) to manage ileitis, the No. 1 enteric disease in the U.S.1 Tylan Soluble accumulates in the cells of the swine intestinal lining where the infection occurs2 to inhibit the growth of Lawsonia intracellularis (the causative agent of ileitis3). Lawsonia impairs the ability of cells to develop properly, which can reduce the pig’s ability to absorb nutrients. Tylan Soluble, which is mixed into drinking water for swine, offers effective control of porcine proliferative enteropathies (PPE, ileitis) associated with Lawsonia intracellularis when followed immediately by Tylan Type A Premix in complete feed.

Those are a few of the reasons pork producers have trusted the Tylan name since 1961.
