Recently Funded Research

Improvement of feed efficiency in Canadian swine industry through genomics and machine learning

Project 21-01 - Dr. Younes Miar

Feed is the largest cost of pork production in Canada and therefore improving feed efficiency (FE) is essential to boost the Canadian pig producer profitability. Additionally, improving FE increases industry competitiveness, decreases demand on global feed resources, and complements...

Ultrasonographic determination of chemical composition and physical properties of meat in fattener pigs

Project 21-04 - Dr. Pawel Bartlewski

Project examines relationships between the physical and chemical properties of the pigs' latissimus dorsi and semimembranosus muscles, and quantitative characteristics of their corresponding ultrasound images determined with the use of commercially available image analytical software...

Development of an in vitro / in vivo correlation method to assess the efficiency of oral drug release from oral medications in swine - Phase 2: Water medication

Project 21-03 - Dr. Jerome del Castillo

Phase 2: Water medication. Project extends the range of tested feedstuffs to those used in the manufacturing of early (1st, 2nd) and late (3rd, 4th) phase weaner diets, determine their abilities to bind the drug molecules of water medications for weaner pigs, and determine the reversibility of...

Development of an in vitro / in vivo correlation method to assess the efficiency of oral drug release from oral medications in swine - Phase 1b: Restoring drug release

Project 21-05 - Dr. Jerome del Castillo

Water Holding Capacity of feedstuffs should help refining the formulation of porcine medicated feeds to preserve the therapeutic efficacy of the dietary drugs.
