Dr. Barry Kerkaert - Applying Research to Decision Making to Maximize Returns at Pipestone

Applying Research to Decision Making to Maximize Returns at Pipestone - Dr. Barry R. Kerkaert, Director of Grow Finish Management, Pipestone Vet Clinic, from the 2012 Boehringer Ingelheim Swine Health Seminar, August 9 - 11, 2012, Wrightsville Beach, NC, USA.

Dr. Barry Kerkaert highlights a clinical trial on enteric disease management. Dr. Kerkaert opens with quote from Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric: When the rate of external change exceeds the rate of internal change, the end of your business is in sight. The US swine business, traditionally, was focused on family owned sows and land. Today, pork farm structure has changed by managing farm structure to better at production flow and management efficiencies. The clinical trial Dr. Kerkaert describes aimed to determine if Enterisol Ileitis vaccine performs better than Tylan feed grade in a step down program as a way to control the effects of a Lawsonia intracellularis infection.
