30 Years of PRRS

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].

SwineCast 1033, ATM - PRRS Summer Breaks

SwineCast 1033 Show Notes:
  • In this episode of At the Meeting honoring Dr. Bob Morrison, we share a conversation on Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) breaks in the summer. Dr. Montse Torremorell joins Dr. Gordon Spronk and Dr. Tom Wetzel with special guests Dr. Cesar Corzo and Dr. Juan Sanhueza.
  • The group talks about the Morrison Swine Health Monitoring Program and what data they have been collecting and analyzing. One of the questions they are now able to address is if there are more new PRRS breaks this summer compared to other summers. One of the observations is that incidence of summer breaks is about 3% of farms, which is about 250,000 sows.
  • Take away: 1) The industry should be looking at breaks all year long (not just in the fall / winter months) and 2) operations should continue practice disease prevention and spreading with regular biosecurity processes.

Effects and Costs of Swine Respiratory Diseases

Porcine Respiratory Disease ComplexUnderstanding Porcine Respiratory Disease Complex Dr. Christa Goodell, Technical Manager, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc., and Dr. Reid Philips, PRRS Senior Technical Manager, Boehringer Ingelheim, provides insight on the impact and costs of porcine respiratory diseases like Porcine Respiratory Disease Complex (PRDC), Porcine Reproductive And Respiratory Syndrome virus (PRRSv), and Influenza A Virus in Swine (IAV-S). Drs. Goodell and Philips outline approaches to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention within swine operations [video].
