Clinical Emphasis

Provide students with clinical experience in swine medicine and production, and to facilitate interactions with veterinary practitioners. Our objective is to prepare students for entry into the pork industry.


Our research program maintains a balance between basic science and clinical investigations. The research addresses specific concerns in the pork industry. Topics include interactions between stress and immune function, reproduction, water medications, and infectious agents. The research depends on collaboration with colleagues in the College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Animal Science, and on cooperation by swine practitioners, pork producers and allied industries.
