The annual Boehringer Ingelheim (BIVI) Swine Health Seminar for swine vets was quite the adventure this year.
BIVI addressed the issue of vertical transmission of pathogens in swine herds, featuring presentations by members of the BIVI swine vet team and other veterinary professionals. BIVI Director of Swine Technical Services Dr. Tyler Holck is very proud of their team. “It’s a team that has grown over the years,” he said. “We felt we needed a strong technical team to deliver the value through innovation that we have for a vision for BI.”
Dr. Holck says BI appreciates the opportunity to discuss important issues with swine vets each year at this time in advance of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians annual meeting. “It’s not a large industry from the standpoint of people, so our customers are our partners,” he said.

As always, BI provided a wonderful evening of entertainment for the swine vets and their families. This year it was aboard the USS Midway aircraft carrier, featuring a night skydive, great USO-style entertainment, and a fun fireworks display. Check out the photo album to see! Great idea for anyone planning a big event in San Diego.
