How Do We Answer Questions About PEDv?

Modeling Emerging Disease in the US Swine HerdMath Models Help Understand PEDv Dr. Shweta Bansal, Assistant Professor, Department of Biology at Georgetown University, provides an assessment of how mathematical modeling is used in understanding emerging swine diseases. Dr. Bansal digs into the data and assumptions used to produce a model to help answer questions about PEDv. Specifically, Dr. Bansal's team analyzed the role of movement in PEDv spread and provide an estimation of likely PEDv sources. Dr. Bansal closes with how these mathematical models can be used to highlight hot spot issues and allow organizations to better focus resources to solve disease spread issues.

Swine Health Programs UpdateSwine Health Programs Update Dr. Troy Bigelow, DVM, USDA, APHIS, VS, points out activities within the comprehensive integrated surveillance (CIS) activities, as it relates to swine diseases. Dr. Bigelow outlines research being conducted and data points being monitored. Dr. Bigelow closes with a review of the Swine Health Business Plan and how the program activities will be moving forward with partners like the National Pork Board.

Swine Truck Washing Requires Stronger Process

Swine Truck Wash Study and PEDvHeat and Behavior Change Required Dr. Butch Baker, Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine, shares the results of research on trucks used to haul pigs and how their cleaning protocols impact the spread of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv). Dr. Baker's key messages: Trucks need to be cleaned well and the people involved must be more rigorous. Also, truck washing facilities need to be prepared to support stricter protocols: the payoff is a reduction of herd infections.

What Is The Sustainable Pork Framework?
