The Penn Vet Swine Teaching & Research Center was originally established in 2001. The research facility houses a demonstration herd for alternatives to gestation management in swine, and a space for teaching veterinary students. The facility was subsequently expanded and upgraded in 2009 to expand the mission to include research. Today, our team works with farmers, veterinarians, industry leaders, and corporations to help advance swine nutrition, husbandry, productivity, and welfare. Meet our team.
