ANALYSIS - Gloria Basse, Group Director - US Pork, discusses two innovations from Zoetis - a vaccine for swine flu and their introduction of a product that is an alternative to physical castration in male pigs, writes Sarah Mikesell, ThePigSite senior editor.

Basse explains how Zoetis brought their swine flu vaccine to the US market in record time - four months - rather than the 17-24 months it usually takes.

She also expands on Zoetis' recent US launch of Improvest (Improvac in other markets) which works with the pigs own immune system to eliminate boar taint.
