Spilled bacteria 🧫

swine o'clock Oct 13, 2022

There’s no point in crying over spilled milk… But what about spilled bacteria? An ongoing collaboration between the Swine Health Information Center (SHIC) and the Center for the Ecology of Infectious Diseases, at the University of Georgia, is examining the risk of bacterial spillover from North American wild animals into the US swine herds. 



🛡 For now, everybody is hoping that the results will yield enhanced information needed to prevent, prepare, and respond to emerging diseases along with their potential impacts on swine health, welfare, and market.
