Managing Pig Environment though Drastic Temperature Changes
With winter hitting stride over this last month, its critical to watch your minimum ventilation settings. Barns set up incorrectly can lead to health challenges and poor growth.

Necropsy Training Session
Sam Holst and Jake Schwartz will be hosting a training session on posting pigs, identifying common swine disease and proper tissue submission. We encourage participants to bring pigs from the farm as this is a great opportunity to post, observe and learn from your own pigs.

Foreign Animal Disease Preparedness
If any foreign animal disease that affects swine such as foot and mouth disease (FMD), classical swine fever (CSF), or African swine fever (ASF) is found in United States livestock, regulatory officials will limit the movement of animals and animal products to try and control the spread of these very contagious animal diseases. This will include wean pig movements, market loads, feed and supplies for a minimum of 72 hours. FMD, CSF and ASF are not public health or food safety concerns. The meat will still be safe to eat.

Vaccination Reminder
Vaccinations for ileitis and erysipelas should start in February for those not vaccinating year around.

Congratulations Dr. Sam and Amy Holst on the birth of their baby boy!
