Our Healthy Breeding and Research Swine Herds

ABI operations meet and exceed The Animal Welfare Act, 2005, and The Guide for the Care and Use of Agricultural Animals in Ag. Research and Teaching, 1988. ABI research swine are raised in a multipurose complex with isolated breeding and growing swine facilities. All Yorkshire crossbred pigs are managed by professional porcine specialists and veterinarians to maintain the highest standards of health and genetics. Growing pigs receive special diets formulated on the farm for each age and weight group according to the NRC (National Research Council) (1983) recommendations.

  • The ABI breeding herd has tested negative since 1994 for brucellosis and pseudorabies.
  • The herd tests negative for Salmonella Species.
  • All production herd animals are vaccinated for Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS), Circovirus and Swine Influenza Virus (SIV).
  • Prior to breeding, the breeding herd is wormed with Ivomec and vaccinated for Leptospirosis, Erysipelas and PRRS.
  • Young research swine receive iron at three days of age. At weaning they are vaccinated for Rhinitis, Mycoplasma and Hemophilus Pneumonia, and are wormed with Fenbendazole.
  • The pigs continue to receive Fenbendazole every four weeks until they grow out of the sales inventory weight range in order to prevent internal parasite infestation and larval migration.
  • The ABI research swine herd has tested negative for Malignant Hyperthermia (MH). Genetics introduced into the herd are free of the MH (Stress) gene.
  • ABI has high-quality Yorkshire Crossbred research pigs available at all ages, sexes and weights, all year-round.
