Introduction When designing grazing systems for outdoor pigs, consider the natural behavior of this species. In addition to their trampling and rooting activities that can destroy the vegetative ground cover and alter the soil, the selection of dunging areas can...
Abstract The objective of this study was to determine effects of pelleting on the standardized ileal digestibility (SID) of amino acids (AA) in diets with or without increased concentrations of free AA and reducing sugars (RS). Eight individually housed, ileal...
While researchers are well versed in the cardiovascular risks associated with a bad diet, a lack of exercise, and smoking, they’re still learning about another possible risk factor that could lead to poor cardiac health: what you consume in the first few weeks of your life. Dr....
The impact of heat stress on sows and piglets can have severe consequences for stock health, welfare, reproductive performance, and profitability.   Faced with the combination of high temperatures and humidity (THI), sows redirect blood flow away from their ovaries, focusing...

In this recent publication from the Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation, Dr. Matt Sturos from the UMN Veterinary Diagnostic Lab shares a case report establishing the shedding of Senecavirus A through boar semen. This study highlights the importance of...
The purpose of the experiment was to assess the response of 10-kg pigs to diets containing increasing levels of dietary lysine when formulated on a digestible amino acid and ideal protein basis. The experiment consisted of a growth study...
Author: Dr. Spenser Becker, Swine Technical Services at AB Vista Pork producers are continually looking for ways to maximize productivity on swine farms. With the number of pigs born per litter increasing, it is critical to maintain birth and weaning...
Obtaining cycle threshold (Ct) values based on processing fluids provides a practical way to identify neonatal pigs at risk for nursery mortality associated with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) and can help determine when vaccination is worthwhile, field...
