Aiming to Reclaim Lost 10%

Not All PRRSV Antibodies are Created EqualResearch Mind Set on PRRS Dr. Bob Rowland, College of Veterinary Medicine, Kansas State University, offers his view that there will never be a magic bullet to conquer PRRS. Instead he has set forth to figure out how to claim back more pigs from the 10%+ lost production pigs PRRS claims.

Does PRRS Load-Close-Expose Work?

What Have We Learned Regarding the Impact of MLV or LVI in the L-C-E Protocol for Breeding Herd Stabilization?Looking At Swine Farm Data Dr. Daniel Linhares, PIC/Agroceres, provides some perspectives on what has been learned regarding the impact of modified live virus (MLV) or live virus inocula (LVI) in the load-close-expose (L-C-E) protocol for breeding herd stabilization. Dr. Linhares shares research metrics and how processes have changed as a result.

Evaluation of Airbone Shedding of Fostera PRRS Modified Live Virus (MLV) Vaccine from Growing Pigs Raised Under Commercial Conditions - Dr. Paul Yeske, Swine Vet Center, from the 2013 North American PRRS Symposium, December 7-8, 2013, Chicago, IL, USA.

Were Early Indicators of PEDV Available?

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) Is Here - Ready or NotPEDV is Here, Work Through It Dr. Dick Hesse, College of Veterinary Medicine, Kansas State University, makes a point of emphasizing that "Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) Is Here - Ready or Not". PEDV, Dr. Hesse thinks, is a disease for which we had lots of warning but pretty much ignored it. Dr. Hesse describes research that is being run to better understand PEDV, how to approach detecting and reducing its impact. Dr. Hesse summarizes how PEDV spreads and what approaches to vaccine development is being done.

Example of PRRS Control at The Maschhoffs

PRRS Control Procedures WorkControl Procedures Work Dr. Clayton Johnson, The Maschhoffs, shares how they have applied porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) control protocols. Dr. Johnson highlights the measurements and processes used on a regular basis to help sustain the health of their herds.

Procedures Are Key to PRRS Management

Development of a PRRS Outbreak Investigations ProgramBuilding Your Biosecurity Dr. Derald Holtkamp, College of Veterinary Medicine, Iowa State University, looks at the development of the porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) outbreak investigations. One of the key messages is that biosecurity is a must maintain program in operations. He talks about tactics how to implement and sustain biosecurity.

PRRS in the Air

PRRS and Field Applicable PRRS Control ResearchLearning About Airborne PRRS Dr. Scott Dee, Pipestone Veterinary Clinic, provides a status of porcine reproductive & respiratory syndrome (PRRS) and field applicable PRRS control research. Dr. Dee discusses the challenges of airborne PRRS to filtered sow farms. He also looks that strategies that can be applied to reduce the airborne risks.
