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...
Animal Science - Swine Nutrition
Should Producers Invest in 2-High, 3-High, or 4-High Roller Mills?
The overall objective of this research is to help producers decide whether they should invest in a 2-High, 3-High, or 4-High roller mill when considering technology to reduce particle size to...
Public Health - MRSA
Alternatives to antibiotics? Effects on MRSA prevalence in swine production systems
Antimicrobial resistant bacteria in animal products are of major public health concern. The concerns about prudent use of antimicrobials have largely focused on feed grade antibiotic products...
Animal Science - Swine Nutrition
Evaluating the use of long-term conditioning or extrusion to extract nutrients from low energy feedstuffs
A shift in three major issues affecting feed manufacturing for pork production has occurred simultaneously in recent years. First, high...
Determining the impact of conditioning time and temperature in pelleted diets on porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv) survivability in complete swine diets
Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) has profoundly affected the U.S. swine industry since it emerged May 2013. Since late January 2014, it has been suspected that PEDv outbreaks have been...
