Pork production is a global business, especially since pork is the world’s favorite animal protein. As a trusted production partner, swine veterinarians play a vital role in the global trade landscape. Swine practitioners gather in San Diego, Calif., for the annual meeting of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians to gather insightful information to help America’s pig farmers successfully produce pork for the global table. “Against a backdrop of global trade, multinational food production systems and the reality of transboundary disease, we work to implement the knowledge we have gleaned from a multitude of information sources into practices that improve the health, production and well-being of the pigs in our clients’ care,” says C. Scanlon Daniels, DVM, AASV president-elect.
Here’s what your veterinarian learned at the 49th annual meeting of AASV.
