The Morrison Swine Health Monitoring Project, funded in part by the Swine Health Information Center, continues to monitor trends in pathogen incidence and prevalence. Now, a new MSHMP website optimizes the project’s information sharing ability for both the participant and swine industry communities at https://mshmp.umn.edu/. MSHMP staff say the website represents a significant milestone in their mission to enhance collaboration and communication within the swine industry.
The website contains 10 sections, including Home, About, History, People, Reports, Outreach, Ongoing Projects, News, Resources, and Contact Us. Project participants and industry stakeholders will find easy access to MSHMP outputs as it facilitates effective communication and dissemination of crucial information.
MSHMP staff understands the value of comprehensive and reliable information together with balanced data interpretation. For those seeking to stay up to date with the most current official announcements and developments, the site includes links to web pages of official institutions. For additional insights, specialized content and different perspectives, links to collaborators web pages are also included.
MSHMP is facilitating sharing of health information by tracking multiple diseases, including transport and health relationships, and is growing into adding boar stud and growing pig data to the sow information already gathered.
The Swine Health Information Center, launched in 2015 with Pork Checkoff funding, protects and enhances the health of the US swine herd by minimizing the impact of emerging disease threats through preparedness, coordinated communications, global disease monitoring, analysis of swine health data, and targeted research investments. As a conduit of information and research, SHIC encourages sharing of its publications and research. Forward, reprint, and quote SHIC material freely.
