Tips at IntestiPig Forum

Dr. Jéssica A. Barbosa

The Intestine is the real Growth Machine

Our host, Stephan von Berg, Global Technical Director Swine – PigCare at MSD Animal Health, talks with Professor Jessica Barbosa, Researcher at the University of Saskatchewan (Canada), about new approaches in controlling intestinal health.

Dr. Barbosa explains the relationship between Microbiome and pathogens, for example, in the case of Swine dysentery. She also deeps into some of her research focus: how the microbiome could improve pig’s performance through a better FCR, and Feaces Therapy as a potential solution to control intestinal diseases in swine (following human medicine’s example).
