How Has Pork Fared As a Process?

Pork Industry Productivity AnalysisKeeping Productive Dr. Ken Stalder, Iowa State University, presents a productivity analysis of the pork industry using data from 2007 to 2012. Dr. Stalder identifies key types of swine production that are benchmarked from the data and highlights trends. This analysis is planned to be updated yearly with another year's worth of data and presented at key swine management meetings.

How Can We Look At Disease Transmission Differently?

Infection Chain ConceptWhat is the Infection Chain Concept? Dr. Brian Payne, Swine Technical Manager, Boehringer Ingelheim, looks that the infection chain concept and updates people on the new information that has been assembled. Dr. Payne looks at the system level approach to understanding how disease progress and trying to identify the roots of the disease infection problems.

Incidence of Infection

Swine Production Infection ChainSwine Production Infection Chain Dr. David Baumert, Swine Practitioner, talks about the infection chain concept as it relates to Mycoplasma hyopneumonia (Mhp). The infection chain concept is the movement of infectious disease agents from breeding herds to the offspring production flows (with resulting production losses up to and including the market swine phase). Dr. Baumert closes with note that control of 'Infection Chain Disease' at the gilt source level can control significant economic loss throughout the production chain.

What Weather?

What The Weather HoldsWhat The Weather Holds Dr. Elwynn Taylor, Iowa State University, shares his view on what the weather will hold. The weather affects everyone, if they produce grain or are buying grain. These past years the weather has been widely varied: Snow a foot deep on one day to 101F° two days later is an example. Dr. Taylor advocates that risk management is key; risk has numbers and "we can manage anything with numbers". Dr. Taylor's summary: Hurricane season expected to be active; Drought likely to persist/expand in West; Temperature (High &/or Low) significant; and Climate will likely be increasingly erratic (25 year interval).
