Biosecurity

SwineCast 1041, The Squeal - On Creating A Biosecurity Culture

SwineCast 1041 Show Notes:
  • In this episode of The Squeal, a team of experts addresses a topic of greatest concern to the collective industry mind, biosecurity. Sharing hands on techniques and implementation ideas are Dr. Joel Nerem (Pipestone Veterinary Services), Dr. Andrea Pitkin (PIC Health Assurance Veterinary Team), and Dr. Jess Wadell (PIC Health Assurance Veterinary Team).
  • Biosecurity - It's something that just doesn't happen from 8:00 to 5:00, it has to be 24/7. It has to be on the weekends, it has to be on the holidays. It just has to be part of what people do every day, and it's often not convenient. The things that this episode talks about are going to prevent disease and are not convenient. That's why it has to be culture. It has to be just ingrained.

SwineCast 1033, ATM - PRRS Summer Breaks

SwineCast 1033 Show Notes:
  • In this episode of At the Meeting honoring Dr. Bob Morrison, we share a conversation on Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) breaks in the summer. Dr. Montse Torremorell joins Dr. Gordon Spronk and Dr. Tom Wetzel with special guests Dr. Cesar Corzo and Dr. Juan Sanhueza.
  • The group talks about the Morrison Swine Health Monitoring Program and what data they have been collecting and analyzing. One of the questions they are now able to address is if there are more new PRRS breaks this summer compared to other summers. One of the observations is that incidence of summer breaks is about 3% of farms, which is about 250,000 sows.
  • Take away: 1) The industry should be looking at breaks all year long (not just in the fall / winter months) and 2) operations should continue practice disease prevention and spreading with regular biosecurity processes.
