No doubt about it. It’s a challenging time for our nation’s hog producers. With so much market uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic, many are struggling and facing tough, heart-wrenching decisions.
According to Jesse McCoy, business unit specialist, water treatment/animal safety, with Neogen, one thing that producers should be paying particular attention to right now is biosecurity. He believes it is time to ramp up for the safety of the pigs and staff.
In this episode of Feedstuffs in Focus, Feedstuffs editor Sarah Muirhead talks with McCoy about the benefits that can come from making sure facilities are properly cleaned and disinfected. Also discussed are different ways to approach the overall cleaning of a facility as well as water and feed lines and why that is critical to pig and staff health and safety.
