 precision engineering for prrsv resistance in pigs
precision engineering for prrsv resistance in pigs

Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome is an endemic infectious disease of pigs, manifesting differently in pigs of different ages but primarily causing late-term abortions and stillbirths in sows and respiratory disease in piglets.The causative agent of the disease is the positive-strand RNA PRRS virus (PRRSV). PRRSV only infects a specific subset of cells of the innate immune system of the monocyte/macrophage lineage.Previous research found that the virus needs a specific receptor, CD163, in order to make its own membrane fuse with the host cell membrane in an uptake vesicle to release the viral genetic information into the cytosol and achieve a successful infection.CD163 has a pearl-on-a-string structure, whereby the “pearl”/ domain number 5 was found to interact with the virus a

high levels of welfare and stockmanship in the british pig industry

The National Pig Association has welcomed the findings of a report on objective animal welfare data covering nearly 5.5 million pigs over three years. AHDB’s Real Welfare report is the culmination of a partnership between farmers and vets, developed in response to the pig industry’s desire for science-based evidence of welfare standards within the sector.The voluntary initiative’s findings, based on on-farm assessments covering 5,463,348 pigs over three years, representing 40.5% of all pigs present on farms on the day of assessment, have been described as ‘hugely positive’ by NPA chief executive Zoe Davies.The project looked beyond production systems, focusing on objective science-based indicators of the welfare of the animals, themselves, rather than on the environment the pigs are kept i

supplemental fat not necessary when canola meal is fed to weanling pigs

New research from the University of Illinois shows that adding supplemental dietary fat is not necessary to avoid reduced growth performance when replacing soybean meal with canola meal in diets fed to weanling pigs.

Brian StaufferCHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Timing the harvest and transport of highly perishable, hand-picked crops such as strawberries so these delicate products reach consumers at peak flavor and freshness is an intricate dance that partners Mother Nature with manual labor.However, many of the "smart farming" techniques and technologies that help growers harvest more of what they sow faster and more efficiently have focused primarily on row crops like corn and soybeans, bypassing growers of high-value fresh produce.

hand-picked specialty crops 'ripe' for precision agriculture techniques

Precision agriculture techniques could have substantial financial benefits for producers of hand-picked specialty crops, according to a new paper. A researcher has developed a mathematical model that determined the optimal time for transporting a grower's strawberries from the field to cold storage. Many of the "smart farming" techniques and technologies that help growers harvest more of what they sow faster and more efficiently have focused primarily on row crops, bypassing growers of high-value fresh produce."The large machines used to harvest row crops such as wheat, corn and soybeans provide a natural platform for improving efficiency," said Richard Sowers, a professor of industrial and enterprise systems engineering and of mathematics at the University of Illinois.

rapeseed meal could replace soya meal in finisher pig diets

Take-home messagesRapeseed meal could entirely replace soya bean meal in finisher pig dietsProportions of rapeseed meal in a diet could be lifted to 25% without it impacting on an animal’s performanceCould be an opportunity for feed suppliers to revise formulations and reduce dependence on imported soyaRapeseed meal could replace soya bean meal as a cheaper and more sustainable alternative source of protein in finisher pig diets.Rapeseed meal has been traditionally limited to 15% of a fattening pig’s diet, but the proportion can be raised to 25% without animals’ growth or performance being affected, researchers have found.It means farmers could reduce their reliance on imported soya-bean meal and potentially reduce their feed costs.The findings came from a study by scientists at the Univer

how the university of connecticut doubled the number of women majoring in engine

Photo: Christopher Larosa/University of ConnecticutLeading by Example: The University of Connecticut connects girls over a range of ages with female engineering undergraduates.The lack of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs continues to be a concern of organizations such as the IEEE and the U.S. National Academy of Engineering. Addressing this problem means encouraging more girls to study the field at degree level: More than four out of five engineering majors in most colleges and universities in the United States are men. While a handful of programs (like at Yale, MIT, and the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering) are already at or near 50/50 parity, the vast majority of engineering programs have a long way to go.However, the University of Connect
