Scheman Building
Iowa State University
Ames, Iowa

Sponsored by: The Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine, the Iowa Pork Industry Center, The Iowa Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV), District 6

The program is designed to answer daily concerns of swine practitioners.

This year's conference will cover issues relating to improvements in the ISU VDL's case submission and reporting technology upgrades as well as updates on VFD implementation, non-antibiotic alternatives as well as a panel of veterinarians discussing experiences with antibiotic free production (ABF). There will also be practitioner experiences with influenza, positive pressure filtration of breeding herds, Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae planned exposures and persistent shedding as well as PRRS research updates as well. We will cover risk assessments for antibiotic resistance as well as the state of the herd health in Asia as well.

Three pre-conference workshops will be conducted on the Wednesday afternoon, prior to the beginning of the main conference. These workshops will cover bioinformatics tools for influenza analysis, serological and surveillance monitoring and an interactive diagnostic workshop to be held with the pathologists at the VDL.
