Dr. Jordan Gebhardt, Kansas State University
Dr. Gebhardt’s research interests involve practical problems the swine industry faces focused on production medicine, safety of livestock feed, and nutrition. Much of this research is applied in nature and involves collaboration with production systems and professionals in the field. Recent research has focused on the role the feed supply chain has a potential route of disease transmission, specifically investigating porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) and African swine fever virus (ASFV). Dr. Gebhardt works with a collaborative group of swine nutritionists, feed scientists, and veterinarians to holistically understand feed safety and biosecurity and generate practical solutions for swine producers and feed manufacturers.
