Investigation on control of neonatal diarrhea in piglets by using E.coli bacterin was conducted. It was found that during the first 4 days of life, piglets born from vaccinated dams developed diarrhea lower significantly than those from unvaccinated dams (controls) both morbidity (mean) 8.7% VS 17.7% and mortality 0% VS 3.9%. Accumulative dead rate due to diarrhea through 10 days revealed that piglets born from dam received vaccination was also lower than the controls, (0% VS 3.9%).
