Abstract Porcine parainfluenza virus 1 (PPIV-1) is a recently characterized swine respirovirus. Previous experimental studies reported PPIV-1 replicates in the porcine respiratory tract causing minimal clinical disease or lesions. However, it is unknown if PPIV-1 co-infections with viral respiratory pathogens...
Drip loss or purge is the loss of fluid from the carcass, it is the opposite of water retention. It is economically important in several ways. 1, For the slaughter plant. Most slaughter plants look closely at Killing Out %....
Abstract The swine and agriculture industries have consistently been searching for increased methods for improving efficiency. This study addressed this concern through measuring sow activity traits and lesions in order to identify associations with lameness and gilt retention. Culled females...
Abstract African swine fever virus (ASFV) is a lethal animal pathogen that enters its host cells through endocytosis. So far, host factors specifically required for ASFV replication have been barely identified. In this study a genome-wide CRISPR/Cas9 knockout screen in...
Abstract A total of 4,318 pigs (337×1050, PIC; initially 6.5±0.08kg) were used in a 35-d trial to evaluate dietary mycotoxin control strategies on nursery pig performance and blood measures. Pigs were weaned at 21-d of age and randomly allotted to...
Abstract Indirect transmission of influenza A virus (IAV) contributes to virus spread in pigs. To identify farm management activities with the ability to contaminate farmworkers’ hands and clothing that then could be a source of virus spread to other pigs,...
The importance of water in swine production cannot be overstated, as it is essential for normal metabolic function and is the nutrient consumed in the largest quantity by pigs. Water also is critical for regulating body temperature, excreting waste,...
Not all phytases are the same To generate accurate and dependable matrix values, AB Vista utilizes a large trial database to create a holo-analysis. A built-in safety margin is also incorporated by using confidence limits, thereby effectively delivering...
One of Alltech’s mycotoxin research papers has been recognized by Toxins, a prestigious international research journal, as one of three winners of their 2022 Best Paper Awards. One of Alltech’s mycotoxin research papers has been recognized by Toxins, a prestigious...
Corn is the primary grain used in pig diets and provides most energy to the diets. Because energy is the most expensive component in diet formulation, it is critical to accurately determine energy concentrations in corn. Use of exogenous...
