Abstract

The Iowa State University Swine Intensive Studies Laboratory was created in the summer of 2009, as a collaborative effort between the Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine and the Animal Science Departments. The primary investigators were Drs. L. Karriker, A. Johnson and K. Stalder. More than a dozen students have contributed to research in the laboratory. The laboratory was developed to study issues related to sow longevity by collecting comprehensive physiologic, behavioral and performance data simultaneously. This research facility is unique in its capabilities and in its location of close proximity to several helpful resources applicable to swine research. Future studies are focused on developing objective assessments of pain.
