Pipestone perspective: Latest on feed mitigants, responsible imports

During this week's Midwest Pork Conference, Scott Dee presented an update on the feed mitigant research as well as a new feed quarantine model.

Keeping foreign animal diseases, specifically African swine fever, out of U.S. pork production systems remains a top priority for the industry, with best practices in biosecurity at the forefront. During the Midwest Pork Conference in Danville, Ind., Tuesday, National Hog Farmer had the opportunity to catch up with Scott Dee, director of Pipestone Applied Research. In his first presentation, "Foreign Animal Disease Update," Dee shared the latest on Pipestone and Kansas State University's ongoing research with feeding mitigants to reduce the impact of swine disease in commerical production settings as well as Pipestone's new feed quarantine model called "Responsible Imports," a science-based plan to safely introduce essential products from countries of high risk. Dee followed up that session with another breakout "Biosecurity on the Farm," which reviewed the science behind biosecurity practices as well as the measures producers can take on a daily basis on farm.
