Kansas State: swine industry day for PCV2

28-09-2007 | |

Kansas State University’s annual Swine Industry Day will focus on Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2), on November 15.

At the special day, a general update is given on what researchers have discovered over the last 12 months.

The session Porcine Circovirus: what have we learned in the last year? features Lisa Tokach and Steve Henry from the Abilene Animal Hospital, as well as researchers from the K-State College of Veterinary Medicine.

Following the PCV2 discussion, the K-State Swine Nutrition Team will review the nutrition research that has been conducted in the last year, to address the rise in ingredient prices.

The programme will culminate with Trent Loos, a nationally-known agricultural commentator, who will address positioning animal agriculture for the future.

“K-State’s PCV2 team has done more research with PCV vaccines on farms than anybody in the world,” said Mike Tokach, who is the animal science state leader for K-State Research and Extension.

“They will relay (to Swine Day attendees) all that has been learned through experiments with the new vaccines.”

The Swine Industrial Day is scheduled for November 15 at the Kansas State University Alumni Center in Manhattan, Kansas.
