Streptococcal and staphylococcal infections increase with increases in central farrowing housing and cause serious losses in young pigs. The baby pig may be affected in many ways, such as growths on the heart valves; pneumonia, and peritonitis; however, infected joints are the most serious problem in many herds. The pigs develop enlarged, crippling joints. Many die and others are stunted. Tentative diagnoses often are erysipelas; however, culture of the joints usually reveals that a strept and/or a staph is involved.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November, 1973
