New partnership unveiled for swine-related research

STARKVILLE — Mississippi State University is partnering with Prestage Farms Inc. as its researchers prepare to resume swine-related studies.

The result has been the installation of feeders, a new watering system, a feed auger system to move feed to the pigs as needed and ventilation curtains that open and close automatically to control the temperature in the facility.

Mark Crenshaw is a swine specialist with the MSU Extension Service.

He says the facility is located in the H.H. Leveck Animal Research Center. He says while it has housed pigs before, the building has been used as a multipurpose facility in recent years.

Crenshaw says the facility will not only house swine research but also provide students firsthand experience to prepare them for working in the swine industry.
