Bakum Fieldstation for Epidemiology

In 1991 the field station of the School of Veterinary Medicine Hannover was founded. It is situated some 150 km west of Hanover in the region of Germany with the highest density of pig herds and poultry flocks. Its major task is teaching the students rubber boot epidemiology and preventive veterinary medicine mainly in pig herds. There is a close cooperation with veterinary practitioners, pig farmers and abattoirs of the region.

Research work is concentrated on pig and poultry husbandry with special regard to herd and flock health improvement, quality assurance systems from conception to consumption and animal welfare on the farm, during transport, and at slaughter. Particular attention is paid to such subjects as salmonellosis in pigs and poultry, respiratory diseases in pigs, and information systems on animal health through the production line from breeding and fattening until slaughter and meat processing.

The students work at the station for one week, and they are mainly on farms and in abattoirs, but also in the laboratory and the dissection hall of the field station.
