Moredun have invested in new pig accommodation to meet the growing demand from Moredun Scientific’s clients for studies to test the efficacy of new and improved porcine vaccines and therapeutic drugs. Tackling the problem of porcine infectious disease is a major focus for pig producers and the animal health industry continues to develop products to prevent and control infections.
The new facilities provide increased accommodation for farrowing sows and weaner piglets with optimised ventilation and housing temperatures. Moredun Scientific have a portfolio of porcine infectious disease models for challenge studies. The new accommodation will be used for studies with specified pathogens up to Containment level 2 such as PRRSV and Streptococcus suis.
