Garth Brown, General Manager at Canadian Centre of Gene Transfer – Genesus Inc. When semen reaches its destination, the farm accepts responsibility for maintaining the potential for consistent reproductive performance of semen doses. Upon arrival, semen doses should be immediately placed...
This recent publication by former MSHMP post-doc Dr. Carles Vilalta compares various sample types used to assess PRRS status of piglets at the litter level. The paper is available in the Preventive Veterinary Medicine journal. Methods Samples were collected from a...
Phosphorus is one of the most expensive nutrients in swine diets. Use of standardized total tract digestibility (STTD) of P, instead of apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD), may reduce the cost of diets because STTD values, unlike ATTD values,...
Key performance metrics for swine production include feed conversion, litters per sow per year, pigs per litter, and pounds of pork produced per sow per year.  All of these metrics have improved dramatically over time.  Improvements in production performance...

Abstract A total of 300 pigs (DNA 400 × 200, Columbus, NE), initially 11.1 kg, were used in a study to evaluate the effects of increasing amounts of high-protein distillers dried grains (HP DDG) on growth performance and to estimate...
Swine diets are primarily formulated and tested in growing pigs. Studies show the ideal ratio of nutrients, specifically the ratio of calcium to phosphorus, changes slightly but predictably as pigs progress through the growing stage. What’s not well-understood is...
Abstract Weaning is a crucial phase of swine production marked by a multitude of biological and environmental stressors, which have a significant impact on immediate postweaning behavior and feed intake (FI). During this time, the piglet’s gastrointestinal (GI) system is...
Swine Influenza A Virus (IAV-S) imposes a significant impact on the pork industry and has been deemed a significant threat to global public health due to its zoonotic potential. The most effective method of preventing IAV-S is vaccination. While...
