Diseases no longer follow the traditional pattern, whereby one specific pathogen provoked clear clinical symptoms with a specific pathology. Intensification also meant that the animal became increasingly dependent on mechanical equipment for mechanical ventilation, feeding, and manure removal. The considerable increase in herd size and the close contact between animals favor a quick passage of pathogens, which can lead to an increase in virulence and an increased infection pressure [ 2 ]. Some animal breeds are productive but may lack sufficient disease resistance and are sensitive to relatively small perturbation in their artificial environment, such as in temperature or air supply.
