OAHN Swine Network Project: Ontario Swine Producer Clinical Impression Survey (in progress)

Project Lead: Dr. Tim Blackwell

Collaborators:  Dr. George Charbonneau

Project Proposal:

This project is designed to assess the health issues of primary concern to swine producers and to compare those to the major swine health problems identified by swine practitioners responding to the OAHN quarterly disease surveys. This will allow the OAHN Swine network to compare producer generated health data with the information collected quarterly from swine veterinarians.   Reasons for discrepancies between producer-generated health concerns and those identified by swine veterinarians will be examined.  This survey will be designed as a one-time reach out to swine producers but could be used again if the project is deemed successful.
