Achieving Sow Longevity

Improving Sow Survivability

Improving Sow SurvivabilityImproving Sow Survivability Dr. Jason Ross, Iowa State University, presents a look at sow mortality, especially due to prolapses. This is an ongoing research project that has collected raw data from over 100 farms. One of the key observations is that there is significant variation across farms. Follow-on activity includes projects at high & low incidence farms plus designing & employing on farm mitigation studies [video].
