How To Improve Sow Lifetime Productivity

National Pork Board Initiative to Improve Sow Lifetime ProductivitySow Lifetime Productivity Improvements Dr. Chris Hostetler, National Pork Board, over the last year has developed a research plan to look at sow lifetime productivity. The metric has some challenges with many variable ecosystem inputs. With feedback from others in the swine industry, Dr. Hostetler has put in place a plan to understand sow lifetime productivity, how to measure the various factors, and outline a strategic initiative focus on improving lifetime sow productivity.

Playlist: One Health Approach to Antimicrobial Use and Resistance
