BRAZIL - The city of Foz do Iguassu will be once again the hosting site of the Pork Expo, responding to the survey carried out with the participants in the 2004's exposition.

Pork Expo 2006 That same survey also came to show the satisfaction of both corporations and participants with the holding of the event every two years and, as ever, the organizing commission accepted this suggestion, bearing at all times as prior aim to get the satisfaction of customers, partners, friends and visitors.

The presentation "The impact of enteric and respiratory diseases on the production profitability", by Lawrence Firkins, Extension Specialist of College of Veterinary Medicine, Illinois University (USA), will be held from 4:45 to 5:30 p.m. on the October, 25th. Below is a brief description of what he plans on covering: "It was recently reported in a national survey of pork producers in the United States that nearly one in three weaned pigs fail to reach full-market value.
The most common causes of this was due to death loss, culling of poor-doing pigs, and lightweight pigs at the time of marketing. For a 1,000 head grow/finish building, these losses would be over $12,000 U.S. dollars. Enteric and Respiratory diseases are the leading causes of mortality, variation, and attrition. Specific strategies will be discussed to decrease the impact that enteric and respiratory diseases have on production profitability".

The presentation, "Effects of the ban of antimicrobial growth promotors in the EU for swine health", by Dominiek Maes, will be held from 11:15 to 12 a.m. on the October, 25th. Below is a brief description of what he plans on covering: "My presentation will deal with the effects of the ban of antimicrobial growth promotors in farm animals since January 2006 in the entire EU.
Special emphasis will be put on the pig industry and the effects on total medication use, antimicrobial resistance and last but not least on various disease conditions in nursery and fattening pigs (eg. ileitis, swine dysentery). The presentation will be based partly on the experiences from Denmark since the antimicrobial growth promotants have been banned there for a couple of years", says Maes.
