SwineCast 1037, ATM - Porcine Circovirus 3 (PCV3)

SwineCast 1037 Show Notes:
  • In this episode of At the Meeting honoring Dr. Bob Morrison, we share a conversation on porcine circovirus 3, or PCV3.
  • Dr. Montse Torremorell joins Dr. Tom Wetzel and Dr. Gordon Spronk with special guest Dr. Darin Madson, Iowa State University, to talk about porcine circovirus 3 and how it is both similar to, and different from PCV2.
  • Dr. Madson and the show's cohosts discuss clinical signs associated with PCV3, including myocarditis, respiratory issues, and reproductive problems, as well as how current research is focused on better understanding the virus, its history, and whether any current PCV vaccines could offer some form of cross-protection.

SwineCast 1036, The Squeal - On Managing Ventilation For Maximum Performance

SwineCast 1036 Show Notes:
  • This episode by PIC shares important management best practices on managing ventilation for maximum performance. We’ve assembled for this timely topic Lance Barton (Belstra Milling Director of Wean to Finish and Genetic Services), Fernando Gomez (PIC Wean to Finish Specialist), and Nat Stas (PIC Wean to Finish Tech Service Team member).
  • Key take aways: 1) Periodic ventilation monitoring and maintenance is a must, 2) Train people on the specific equipment, troubleshooting skills, and the role ventilation plays in managing animal health, and 3) Develop a mindset that ventilation is not just airflow or temperature or equipment, but a combination of all these factors.

SwineCast 1035, ATM - African Swine Fever, Part 2 of 2

SwineCast 1035 Show Notes:
  • In this second of a two part episode of At The Meeting Honoring Dr. Bob Morrison, we continue our conversation on African Swine Fever or ASF.
  • Dr. Montse Torremorell joins Dr. Tom Wetzel and Dr. Gordon Spronk with special guest Brad Heron, Director of Operations of Cherkizovo (pronounced "Chair-Kee-Zi-Vo") in Russia. Brad offers a personal, boots on the ground perspective on ASF.
  • Brad shares several stories of how ASF was discovered and handled on the Russian farms he helps run. The early disease indicators were confusing due to other animal diseases also running its course so ASF was not discovered as early as they had thought they would.
  • Brad highlights what happened to the operations when ASF was discovered, actions they had to take, and the Russian regulations they had to work with requiring depopulations within a five mile radius.
  • Brad also summarizes the biosecurity changes they made to defend against ASF, including transportation tracking, multiple testing points through out the operations, and physical farm and people security improvements.
  • The number one key take away from Brad: Have good testing; if you don't test, you don't have the ability discover outbreaks.
