This year’s program will be held on Thursday, November 3rd and Friday, November 4th of 2022. We are going to hold the meeting as in person conference as has been done in the past. This year’s meeting will continue to strive to educate swine veterinarians in the issues that challenge swine producers across the US swine industry.

This year’s conference is going to continue to bring you the latest in clinical cases using the latest tools and research in swine disease and production issues. Focus areas will be on tools to help manage disease such as PRRS, Strep suis, PCV2, Mycoplasma, and E.coli. We will also be focusing on continuing to be increase our level of FAD preparedness and feral swine by learning more about the explosion of feral swine in Canada that border our northern U.S. states as our Roy Schultz Lecture. We are going to have several case presentation from practitioners and faculty at the VDL and VDPAM on new tools to combat diseases such as PRRS, Streptococcus suis and sow mortality. We also are going to hear from various students working in areas such as mortality forecasting, new sampling types, biosecurity and water line biology.

Pre-conference sessions will be held on Wednesday, November 2nd to provide additional help to practitioners on how to better design and execute field evaluations and judicious antibiotic use as well.
