Swine Health - General Disease
Evaluating alternative chemical mitigants to prevent PEDV recontamination of swine feed and ingredients
Research has confirmed that chemical treatments, such as medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) and commercial formaldehyde, can be effective to reduce the risk of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV)...
Animal Well-being
A review of heavy weight market pigs: status of knowledge and future needs assessment
Swine Health - General Disease
Assessing the effects of medium chain fatty acids and fat sources on PEDv by qRT-PCR and bioassay
Research has confirmed that chemical treatments, such as medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) and commercial formaldehyde, can be effective to reduce the risk of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV)...
Development of swine influenza virus platform vector vaccines to control swine influenza virus and porcine epidemic diarrhea virus
Influenza A virus (IAV) causes significant losses to the swine industry. Here we constructed a novel attenuated live IAV vaccine designed to elicit an immune response to conserved IAV proteins by...
Determination of the sites of tissue localization, routes of viral shedding, duration of virus carriage, kinetics of antibody response, and potential of aerosol transmission of Porcine Deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) following inoculation of nursing pigs and their dams
Porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) has recently emerged in the US. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the sites of tissue localization, routes of viral shedding, duration of virus...
Environment - Air
Effectiveness of vegetative environmental buffers to reduce swine facility emissions
In order to ensure compliance with the current and future air quality regulatory requirements, and to co-exist with increasing numbers of neighbors, practical and cost effective air mitigation...
Swine Health - PRRS
Development of next generation sequencing methodology for full genome characterization of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) from oral fluids and nasal swabs
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is one of the most significant swine diseases with near worldwide distribution. In the U.S., open reading frame 5 (ORF5) is commonly...
Pork Quality
Influence of iodine value and packaging type on shelf life of HRI packaged bacon slices
Over the last decade, a great deal of research has been done investigating how diet manipulation influences pork quality.  Most...
Utilizing feed sequencing as a biosecurity intervention for preventing PEDV cross-contamination in the feed manufacturing process
The contamination of feed and feed ingredients with Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) is a major concern to the swine industry and knowing feed or feed ingredients can support PEDV transfer,...
Animal Science - Swine Nutrition
Improving energy utilization in high by-product diets with copper
The overriding objective is to determine if energy utilization from diets containing high levels of by-products and differing in energy content can be improved with supplemental Cu in commercial...
