Chris Rademacher, DVM, has joined the faculty at the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine as the swine extension veterinarian.
Dr. Rademacher is internationally renowned for his experience and expertise in evidence-based swine production medicine, according to the college.
“We are extremely pleased to have one of the most progressive young swine veterinarians in the United States joining our faculty,” said Pat Halbur, DVM, Ph.D., chair of veterinary diagnostic and production animal medicine department. “Dr. Rademacher’s international experience in swine production medicine and applied clinical research will make him a highly sought out and valued resource for swine veterinarians and pork producers.”
In his role, Rademacher will continue his focus and interest in using research methodologies to answer specific health and production questions and disseminate that information broadly to swine veterinarians and pork producers to continuously improve pork production in the United States.
“I am looking forward to serving swine producers and veterinarians and assisting them in improving the health, welfare and productivity of the animals they care for.”
