Iowa State, Kansas State and Purdue faculty, staff and students who collaborate through industry partnerships to maximize pig survivability
A large consortium with the focus of improving pig survivability
to identify causative factors contributing to swine mortality in commercial production and to develop and disseminate strategies and information that can be utilized to maximize pig survivability with the goal of reducing overall mortality nationally.
Ideas in the swine industry worth sharing. Join extension specialists and swine industry experts as they engage in conversations aimed to help producers succeed in raising healthy pigs. PigX is a national podcast hosted by the Iowa Pork Industry Center at Iowa State University.
The PigX podcast is launching! In the meantime, subscribe on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify or wherever you find your podcasts. You can also find the podcast at Global Ag Network.
