Swine Health Information Center Receives Positive Feedback

by | Jul 24, 2015 | News | 0 comments

The new Swine Health Information Center that recently opened its offices in Perry, Iowa this year, is receiving positive feedback from pork producers and veterinarians. Executive director of the center, Paul Sundberg, said producers are eager for the center to begin its work to help detect potential disease threats and prevent losses from diseases.

Sundberg said that SHIC is an independent organization but that it will work closely with veterinarians, pork producers, swine genetics companies, animal-health product providers and organizations including the NPB, AASV, the National Pork Producers Council, land-grant universities and the USDA, among others.

He also noted that the other key role of the center will be to develop an international network. This network would allow the prevention of international diseases from entering the US.
