Swine Health - General Disease
Comprehensive Literature Review on the current knowledge for Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus and Porcine Deltacoronavirus
Animal Science - Swine Nutrition
Novel feed processing methods of cold pelleting and fine ground corn segregation to maximize feed efficiency, nutrient utilization and economic return
Swine producers continue to grind to extremely fine particle sizes, which inherently produces a significant portion of the diet that is fine powder. The fine particles (< 150 microns) create...
Public Health - Antibiotics & Resistance
Do probiotics, an antibiotic alternative, mitigate or contribute to emergence and persistence of antimicrobial resistance in gut bacteria?
The use of antimicrobials in feed and their positive benefits on growth performance during the nursery stage of swine production system is well established. In the past, producers have widely used...
Swine Health - General Disease
Evaluating the effects of chemical treatments to reduce the likelihood of PEDV transmission by feed manufacturing equipment.
The overall objective of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of various chemical mitigation products applied to different feed manufacturing surfaces on the reduction of porcine...
Swine Health - PRRS
Determination of the PRRSV minor glycoproteins contribution to antigenicity and protection
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) has been the most significant disease affecting swine in the U.S. for decades. Contemporary epidemiological methods rely on sequencing of...
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)...

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...
