  • In hotter climates and seasons, heat stress can have a large effect on pig performance, regardless of their stage of production. Dr. Jay Johnson has been a wonderful asset to the swine community with his work on the effect of heat stress on pigs and shares some insight on his research findings. In today’s episode, he discusses the importance of understanding heat stress and different strategies we can utilize to help mitigate its effects on pig health and performance.

  • As research continues to develop new ways to improve the swine industry, our farms have to find ways to feasibly implement these new developments. Some new technologies look good on paper, but are not feasible due to the cost of the extra labor. In today’s talk, Dr. Ken Stalder discusses different ways of defining sow productivity, the necessary training required to implement new technologies, and how to identify which technologies will be the most beneficial to implement on the farm.

Immediately after receiving his Ph.D., Ken started as an assistant professor at the University of Tennessee until 2003 when he accepted a position as a professor at his alma mater, specializing in swine genetics and extension. Ken’s work has led to an increased focus on sow longevity within the swine industry. With the help of his colleagues, Dr. Stalder developed spreadsheets to determine how long a sow has to remain in the breeding herd to “pay for herself” and he developed posters highlighting ideal traits for replacement gilts. These tools are widely used across the globe today. Dr. Stalder has published over 500 articles (including over 145 journal articles). Ken has mentored 18 graduate students (13 M.S., 5 Ph.D.) and served on the committee for 45 others (34 M.S., 11 Ph.D.).

  • PRRS virus has affected herds across the United States for over 30 years and has been a major cause of economic losses across the industry. As many farms are now PRRS positive, or are very likely to eventually contract PRRS, it is important to understand how to monitor, control, or even eliminate PRRS on our farms. In today’s talk with Dr. Daniel Linhares, he discusses several methods of dealing with PRRS to prevent infection and subsequent economic losses and how best to mitigate its effects if infection has already occurred.

  • When you think about improving nutrition, you typically measure your success with growth performance, but that should not always be the only goal. Today Dr. Laura Greiner talks with Dr. Dan Columbus about how nutrition affects pig health and how we should formulate our diets differently when faced with certain health challenges. Nutrient uptake can be altered during a disease outbreak, and adapting the diet to overcome this challenge is essential for maximizing production.

As he began to buy and raise feeder pigs, he saw the writing on the wall; it was time to go big or go out of business. The venture was a success and scaled from about 30 farms to over 350 farms and started raising over 1.5 million pigs per year (2018). As the company grew, so did the problems — from spiking death loss to sinking caregiver morale. In search of an answer to his company’s issues, Chris searched for a market solution, but none existed. That’s when he founded EveryPig, a pig health and production management platform.
