On June 12, the Deliberation Committee, invited by Janssen Animal Health came together in Brussels, Belgium to select the winner of the 4th Pig Management Award. This award will be presented at the upcoming IPVS conference in July.
To guarantee an objective and thorough evaluation, Janssen Animal Health always invites a group of internationally recognised scientists with different fields of expertise in pig health science for this award.
After discussing the pros and cons of all papers, five papers caught the common interest. The jury considered this final selection as being innovative and of real practical value for both farmer and veterinarian.
According to jury member Bob Friendship, the winner of the Pig Management Award should be a paper that when you read it, a light bulb goes on. Meaning you start to think about a certain topic differently than before. “This is certainly the case for the one we have selected as this year’s winner,” said Friendship. The committee unanimously agreed that the winning paper discusses a very important and emerging topic in today’s modern pig production system and provides a practical approach and refreshing approach.
