2020 Podcast Series: Michael Pierdon

During the AASV Annual Meeting, 28 veterinary students interviewed conference speakers to gain additional information about their presentation topic. The final interview is now available to members on the AASV website at https://www.aasv.org/podcast/. Student member Justin Moeller interviewed Dr. Michael Pierdon who presented "Future issues of antibiotic-free production" in the "Pharmaceutical Issues" Session. In this interview Dr. Pierdon discusses how swine producers will accommodate an increased demand of antibiotic free products for consumers. He dives into the two main marketing programs that he believes will be seen most commonly, "Commodity antibiotic-free" and "Niche antibiotic-free" production, and what each entails for producers and veterinarians.
