Farm Forum

The Swine Health Information Center (SHIC) has launched a website to provide the latest information about emerging diseases that threaten the health of the U.S. swine herd.

The site, www.swinehealth.org, will help veterinarians, pork producers, researchers and others with an interest in the health of pigs stay abreast of developments in monitoring and managing diseases, said Dr. Paul Sundberg, executive director of SHIC. In addition to providing the latest news, the site will have detailed information about specific emerging diseases and will be where SHIC posts calls for proposals on specific research topics, Sundberg said.

The Swine Health Information Center is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to improving non-regulatory disease preparedness.
