What is Lawsonia And How Do I Find It?

New Lawsonia Quantitative PCR Test Finding Infected Pigs Dr. Jessica Seate introduces a new quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) test for the bacteria Lawsonia intracellularis, which can be used to test and identify the bacterial concentration levels of Lawsonia in a sample. Using this information can help swine barn management and staff identify sick pigs and at what level of sickness they are, so as to provide the proper treatment effectively.

Animal Disease Traceability in the Pork Industry

An Industry Driven Solution to Implement Animal Disease Traceability in the Pork IndustryAn Industry Driven Solution to Implement ADT Dr. Patrick Webb, Director of Swine Health Programs at National Pork Board, provides insight in to how the Swine ID Plan works with the Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) rule. One of the key drivers is the value of pork exports and the need to have a robust swine ID system so as not to lose on exports. Dr. Webb shares a case study of a swine ID program and what they discovered about processes in place to help make decisions when a foreign animal disease occurs.
