In this video, Emiline Sundman, Iowa State University, describes the use of attractants to stimulate neonatal piglet interest in rope enrichment.
In this video, Andrew Boschert, Kansas State University, explains research done to evaluate the effects of injectable iron on newborn piglets.
In this video, Kayla Mills, Purdue University, explains research done to evaluate the effects of different induction protocols on the farrowing process, fetal oxygen supply, colostrum intake, and piglet survival.
In this video, Madie Wensley, Kansas State University, explains the findings of her literature review on pre-weaning strategies that improve feed intake in the immediate post-weaning period.
In this video, Dr. Julia Holen discusses the impact of essential fatty acids in lactation diets on sow and litter performance.
In this video, Dr. Kara Stewart, Purdue University, discusses the basic biology of colostrum in pigs.
