SwineCast 0836, Leman - Does Downtime Have Any Effect On Distribution Of PEDv?

SwineCast 0836 Show Notes:
  • Dr. Paul Yeske of Swine Vet Center in MN took advantage of an interruption in a pig flow to see what impact downtime between farm visits has on the transmission of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv), if any. 
  • Link to 2014 Leman Conference Presentations

Staying Ahead Of Diseases

Dr. Steven Krakowka - PEDv & Swine Delta Coronavirus (SDCV) Strains/GenomicsFocus On The Biology Dr. Steven Krakowka, The Ohio State University, shares his insight into what he sees within Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) and the Swine Delta Coronavirus (SDCV).

What Do They Do There?

Dr. Rodger Main - Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) DiagnosticsUnderstanding The Diagnostic Activities Dr. Rodger Main, Iowa State University, outlines what the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (VDL) group does and how it works on samples. Dr. Main details their findings on Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) over time & geography, plus wraps up with information on testing equipment, PEDv reporting, and future of information tools for diseases.

Gut Check

Dr. Adam Moeser - Gut Physiology from a Pathogens Point of ViewKeeping Calm, Staying Healthy Dr. Adam Moeser, North Carolina State University, suggests that a pathogen by itself is not enough for an animal to become sick. Dr. Moeser looks at stress as a major environmental factor to increasing the likelihood of an animal becoming sick. Dr. Moeser shares info on how early life intestinal stress plays a part in the development of intestinal epithelial and immune functions in the pig.

Steps to Understanding PEDv Transmission

Dr. Bob Morrison - Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) TransmissionHow Does PEDv Move? Dr. Bob Morrison, University of Minnesota, share research updates on Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) transmission. Dr. Morrison highlights the Lateral Spread Study and specific risk factors for PEDv. Dr. Morrison closes with an outline of future PEDv projects that would look at duration of immunity in gilts, effectiveness of vaccination, and impact of PEDv in growing pigs.
