How to improve pig production - Water is a fundamental requirement for all organisms, yet received surprisingly little attention, especially in pig production circles. However due to the increasing water pollution, clean water is becoming increasingly limited, water can no longer be taken for granted. Pigs drink more than twice as much as they eat.
What is Biofilm? - Biofilm is a cluster of micro organisms joining together on a surface forming a protective extracellular matrix. These bacterial pioneers facilitate the arrival of other pathogens by providing more diverse adhesion sites. Pathogens inside the biofilm communicate through quorum sensing. Quorum sensing allows a bacterium to communicate with other bacteria that are in close proximity.
