Veterinary students: It’s not too late to apply for Morrison Swine Innovator Prize! Share your work at the Allen D. Leman Swine Conference; it’s a great opportunity for veterinary students who want to network with industry leaders.
The Allen D. Leman Swine Conference includes a session for veterinary students to demonstrate their problem-solving skills through the presentation of a case or experience where students challenged their clinical training and problem-solving capabilities necessary for day-to-day practice. Creativity and originality in the support and delivery are encouraged. The session will take place in-personduring the afternoon of Sunday, September 18 at the Allen D. Leman Swine Conference and will include presentations from 7 veterinary students. Invited students will receive a $1,000 stipend and free admission to the Leman Swine Conference.
Submissions to enter in the selection to present at the DVM student session at the Leman Conference should be uploaded at z.umn.edu/MSIP by August 15th at the end of the day.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Zhitnitskiy at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the Morrison Swine Innovator Prize visit z.umn.edu/MSIP.
Every year there is some form of disease outbreak in swine herds across the US. Whether it is PRRSV, PEDV, or something else, we need to make sure that we are doing everything in our power to maintain a high health status on our farms. In this podcast Dr. Cesar Corzo talks with Laura Greiner about his work on his Swine Health Monitoring Program about ways we can minimize the spread of diseases to other farms, and how to more effectively keep our farms disease free.
This is our Friday rubric: every week a new Science Page from the Bob Morrison’s Swine Health Monitoring Project. The previous editions of the science page are available on our website.
In today’s Science Page, University of Minnesota researchers Gustavo Lopez-Moreno, Peter Davies, My Yang, Marie Culhane, Cesar A. Corzo, Chong Li, Aaron Rendahl and Montserrat Torremorell present research on interspecies transmission of influenza A between pigs and farmworkers.
This is our most popular series on the blog. Once a month, we are sharing with you a presentation given at the Allen D. Leman swine conference, on topics that the swine group found interesting, innovative or that lead to great discussions.
You can find all of the presentations selected from previous conferences on the blog here.
This month we learn about PRRSV with Dr. Andreia Arruda (Ohio State University).
