Data Collection Underway in the Swine Barn

Evaluating use of Needle-less injectors in swine production


As part of the ongoing evaluation of needle-less injector technologies in swine barns, several ergo lab team members have been collecting biomechanical exposure measurements during real-life swine injection tasks at the Prairie Swine Centre. Principal Investigator Catherine Trask and Research Assistant Xiaoke Zeng have been working closely with Gbenga Adebayo, who will be analyzing this data as part of his Ph.D. research. The team is very grateful for the participation of the Prairie Swine Centre partners and staff, as well as the substantial contributions of Dr. Aaron Kociolek is development and piloting of the measurement protocols.  Keep up the good work, Team!
