  • The breeding facility is arguably the most complex stage of production in the swine industry. There are a lot of factors that influence the productivity of the sow and those first few weeks of life for the piglets will impact how efficiently they grow for the rest of their lives. In today’s episode, Dr. Laura Greiner and Jennifer Patterson discuss some of the key components of determining sow lifetime productivity and what recent research has shown for the interactions between sows and low birth weight pigs.

  • Bacterial infections in pigs are common on farms no matter how good your biosecurity protocols are. With the continuous use of antibiotics and vaccines in pigs we are beginning to see more antimicrobial resistance in common types of bacteria. In today’s talk, Dr. Matheus Costa chats with Dr. Laura Greiner about the increase in antimicrobial resistance we are seeing in the industry, and methods we are researching to try and deal with this issue.

His research is focused on developing approaches to reduce antimicrobial use and mitigate disease spread. Dr. Costa is specifically interested in the issues associated with antimicrobial resistance (AMR) at the animal-human interface and how they pose challenges for sustainable food production, welfare, and public health. Recently he has focused his research on infectious diseases to which antibiotic treatment is the only option for treatment in the industry (e.g swine dysentery and streptococcal meningitis).
