K-State's Swine Day set for Nov. 21


Kansas State University’s annual Swine Day will be held Nov. 21 at the K-State Alumni Center in Manhattan. This year’s program will focus on ways to improve net returns for swine businesses, with a special emphasis on swine disease prevention and management with two prominent Kansas veterinarians discussing porcine epidemic diarrhea virus. PEDV was first discovered in the United States this year.

The day includes a technology trade show, which starts at 8 a.m., with the program starting at 9:45 a.m. K-State faculty members will provide updates on current swine production research occurring at the university. A poster session also will be held that allows attendees to talk one on one with graduate students who conducted some of the research.

Presentations will include: “Recent Disease Challenge to our Industry – Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea” by Steve Henry, veterinarian at Abilene Animal Hospital and Dick Hesse, professor of diagnostic medicine and pathobiology at K-State; and “Recent On-Farm and Commercial Feed Mill Innovations to Improve Whole Herd Feed Efficiency” by Charles Stark, K-State associate professor of Grain Science and Industry.

The day ends with a tour of the O.H. Kruse Feed Technology Innovation Center Feed Mill and a reception featuring K-State ice cream.

The fee to attend is $25 if paid by Nov. 9 and $35 after that date. The fee includes swine day presentation materials, lunch and the closing reception. More information is available online at www.KSUswine.org or by calling 785-532-1267.

Date: 9/30/2013
