30 Years of PRRS: A Platform for Progress-Pijoan LectureA Platform for Progress - Pijoan Lecture Dr. Michael Rahe delivers the presentation by Dr. Michael Murtaugh for the Pijoan Lecture at the 2018 Allen D. Leman Swine Conference. As a scientist Dr. Murtaugh approached understanding porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSv) using molecular biology and immunology, building on the idea of platforms for progress [video].

Trade in Pigs and Pork

Trade in Pigs and Pork: Challenges for an Exporting NationChallenges for an Exporting Nation Becca Martin, Cargill, shares how agricultural trade transforms products like pork, coffee, and peanut butter into opportunity to raise a high quality product for growing international markets. And it brings the opportunity for those products to be purchased in regions of the world where those products can't efficiently be produced [video].

Crossing Borders: Contaminated Feed and Food

Crossing Borders: Contaminated Feed and FoodCrossing Borders: Contaminated Feed and Food Dr. Scott Dee shares insights at the 2018 Allen D. Leman Swine Conference on how he found out more about animal diseases spreading through feed and getting into swine operations. He pulls together the background info into a story that highlights the clues and data that lead him to dig deeper into the possibility that feed is the vector [video].

Pathogens Travel In Food For Humans Too

Cool logic; solving a norovirus outbreak in a commercially-distributed foodCool Logic; Solving A Norovirus Outbreak In A Commercially-distributed Food Alida Sorenson shares how the connection of a human pathogen to food, combined with the ability to store food a long time and be traded globally, allow pathogens to go farther and impact more people. Using a case study of norovirus in ice-cream in Minnesota, Ms. Sorenson traces how the clues came together and what the response teams had to do to identify, contain, and eliminate the norovirus [video].

Feed and Swine Health

American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) Response and PerspectivesAmerican Feed Industry Association (AFIA) Response and Perspectives Leah Wilkinson provides an American Feed Industry Association response and perspective on swine health as it relates to feed and feed ingredients [video].

Molecular Diagnostics in Swine Disease and Health Discovery

Molecular Diagnostics: Present and FutureMolecular Diagnostics: Present and Future Dr. Declan Schroeder, University of Minnesota, presents thoughts on how molecular biology is applied to swine research. Dr. Schroeder provides a series of details on the approaches to sequencing and understanding the DNA and RNA of pigs [video].

SwineCast 1039 Show Notes:

USA Level Foreign Animal Disease Preparedness

African Swine Fever (ASF) awareness, prevention & response efforts at the national levelAfrican Swine Fever (ASF) awareness, prevention & response efforts at the national level Dr. Patrick Webb, National Pork Board, details the African Swine Fever (ASF) awareness, prevention, and response efforts at the national (USA) level. Diligence, preparedness, and active monitoring is a must. Dr. Webb reminds that there are key foreign animal disease resources at the Pork.Org web site [video].

Large System Experience With African Swine Fever (ASF)

African Swine Fever (ASF) experiences in a large commercial systemAfrican Swine Fever (ASF) experiences in a large commercial system Dr. Gustavo Lopez, University of Minnesota, provides a first hand look at African Swine Fever (ASF) on a farm operated by Cherkizovo (pronounced "Chair-Kee-Zi-Vo") in Russia. Dr. Lopez outlines the detection process, what they missed, the actions they had to take, and the new biosecurity protocols implemented [video].
