BOEHRINGER Ingelheim Animal Health Australia was fortunate to hold the first-ever Australian Boehringer Ingelheim Swine Academy program in Brisbane from November 27-30, 2018, with 16 producers, four veterinarians, and from the US the head of the BISA program Dr Arturo Oropeza participating.
The program was facilitated by Dr Jim Lowe, an American veterinarian, producer and swine consultant, who shared his knowledge of the industry and brought new ideas to the table for Australian pig producers and veterinarians. The inaugural world-class production economics course spanned three and a half days, providing participants with new ways of thinking and economic skills related to the swine industry.
The program aimed to deliver insights on how the study of economics and disease in herd populations can provide pig producers and veterinarians with strategies and tools for improving productivity and profitability. Feedback from participants has been extremely positive, with participants leaving the course with knowledge and tools to re-evaluate current production systems to improve efficiencies.
Boehringer Ingelheim is proud to be able to bring world-class training programs to Australia, to support pig producers in managing production challenges and build a basis for future growth and innovation.
