As the nation’s largest pork-producing state, Iowa has the upmost priority to protect its swine population from ailments, including biosecurity hazards such as swine disease. This is an essential issue for swine farmers across the state and worldwide need to have the ability to be prepared for. This project provides a design and list of materials for a system that removes organic material and disinfects both large machinery and small items efficiently, with a budget under $1500.
This design also utilizes a materials that can be accessed within a half hour drive of even the most remote Iowan farms, along with nationwide vendors.
