Fact vs. Fiction – PCV3 Unraveled

Tech Talk – Fact vs. Fiction – PCV3 Unraveled Tech Talk – Fact vs. Fiction – PCV3 Unraveled Dr. Eduardo Fano, Boehringer Ingelheim, updates us on PCV3, and highlights facts versus myths. Some key observations: 1) PCV3 is widespread in the U.S. and co-infections with PCV2 and PRRSV are commonly found in PCV3 samples, 2) Clinical association: PDNS, Multi-systemic, reproductive failure, PRDC and tremors, and 3) Reproductive Failure has been the most consistent clinical association [video].

SwineCast 0912, PCV Vaccine Function And Effectiveness On Variants

Losses Continue

Losses Continue
The swine industry is going through a very painful period. To put it in perspective, let’s suppose the average producer is losing $30 a head every day. Let’s also assume an average slaughter of 425,000 head per day, the industry is now losing $12.75 million each day. With at least 22 days of slaughter each month, the industry is losing $280.5 million a month. This has been occurring for at least 3 months and---probably closer to 4 ½ months---resulting in a lost of $841 million for the first 3 months of this year. Some producers have some margin protection, but the point that I am making is that equity is eroding very quickly in the industry.
