Swine it #45 The science and art of feed risk - Dr Scott Dee

22 June 2020, at 11:29am

The science that shows viruses can live in the feed has being replicated so many times, over some many different viruses. I think that’s 100% science, there’s no question about that. But there are quite a few things we don’t understand yet, so there’s quite a bit of art.

Dr Scott Dee

What you will learn:

- A brief history behind feed biosecurity;

- The biggest learnings from recent times;

- Minimizing risk in imported products;

- The 80/20 rule of feed biosecurity;

- Art or science?

- The biggest changes in feed mills from a practical standpoint in the last few years;

- The range of feed biosecurity around the globe and what can be done better to reduce everyone’s risk.

Our guest is Dr Scott Dee. Dr Dee earned his DVM, MS, and Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota. He is a board-certified veterinary microbiologist and a past President of the AASV.
