PRRSV and E. coli continue to remain a problem for farms everywhere, and nursery pigs, with their often underdeveloped immune systems, can take a major toll if infected. In this episode, I talk with Jenna Bromm about her work at Kansas State University studying the effects of alpha-linolenic acid supplementation in nursery pigs infected with PRRSV or E. coli to see if it can help alleviate the reduced growth typically seen in affected pigs.

Meet the guest: Jenna Bromm is a master's student at Kansas State University on the swine nutrition team studying under Dr. Mike Tokach. She first joined the swine nutrition team as an undergraduate student while receiving her B.S. from KSU and enjoyed it so much that she decided to stick around to work towards earning an M.S. Her work primarily revolves around the use of alpha-linolenic acid in nursery pigs.
