Rockford, IL – December 21, 2015 – The most recent issue of Pig International magazine unveils the publication’s fresh editorial focus on pig nutrition and health topics to better reflect the primary focus of the swine industry.

As the world population moves to 9 billion by 2050, reaching genetic potential with improved animal management is crucial to meet growing consumption needs. With animal health and nutrition serving as the driving forces, swine nutrition and veterinary professionals seek in-depth technical data and insight so they can provide the best services to producers worldwide.

Nutrition and veterinary professionals currently face many challenges in keeping abreast of industry developments including: new market conditions and consumer requirements regarding antibiotic reduction/elimination, animal health and welfare, diseases, animal performance, educated use of new additives, new forms of fibers, efficiency of production and much more. Focusing their educational efforts on health and nutrition-related content assists them in delivering the best outcome toward sustainability, food safety and profitability.

“While many publications reach the broader pig market, the superior nutrition and health coverage directed through Pig International Editor, Dr. Ioannis Mavromichalis, delivers the deepest available technical information, innovative developments and productivity solutions to our readers,” says Greg Watt, President/CEO. “This is unique to how Pig International covers the industry for our global audience in 160 countries.”

Pig International is published in both print and digital editions. View the most recent issue online at
