SIKAVA

General

SIKAVA is an online health classification register for Finnish pig farms run by Animal Health ETT. Data on antimicrobial usage can voluntarily be registered since 2008. This has become obligatory since 2016 for 90% of Finnish pig farms.

Data collection

Animal subcategories: Four weight categories are distinguished: sows, finishers, weaners and sucklers.
InputFarmers and vets have equal roles in data collection: provide the amount of medicines they give to the animals. Yet, virtually 100% of the data in SIKAVA originate from farmers. 

Analysis, benchmarking and reporting

Benchmarking of and reporting to farms is currently being developed.
