Reducing Losses, Maximizing Profits: Examining Sow Mortality – A podcast

Swine mortality is a significant issue for the industry, as the death of an individual animal deeply affects farmers and the whole swine production.

In this episode, Dr. Mariana Kikuti discusses a study conducted in the US Midwest on sow mortality in pig production systems, aimed at understanding the reasons for sow mortality and identifying factors associated with increased levels.
