More Corn, More Feed, Pork Prices Good

Dr. Steve Meyer - US Pork Industry Economic Situation and OutlookDollar Views On Pork Future Dr. Steve Meyer, Paragon Economics, points out that more corn and soybeans will have been raised in 2014 than ever before. This translates into lowest feed prices, the ethanol gravy train is over, and and high revenues for pork. Regardless of PEDv development, he expects rapid growth (3-4%) in 2015.

Steps to Understanding PEDv Transmission

Dr. Bob Morrison - Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) TransmissionHow Does PEDv Move? Dr. Bob Morrison, University of Minnesota, share research updates on Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) transmission. Dr. Morrison highlights the Lateral Spread Study and specific risk factors for PEDv. Dr. Morrison closes with an outline of future PEDv projects that would look at duration of immunity in gilts, effectiveness of vaccination, and impact of PEDv in growing pigs.

PEDv Can Be Helpful To Pork Future

Dr. Dale Polson - What PEDv is saying... but are we listening?Gaining Value From PEDv Dr. Dale Polson, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, looks at Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) as a systemic disease and what the data points are telling the swine industry. Dr. Polson recommends that PEDv is a signal that there needs to be broader, connected, and grassroots area coordinated disease control.

Coronaviruses From Around The World

Dr. Dick Hesse - Recent Emergence of Swine Coronaviruses in North AmericaWhat Is Theirs May Become What Is Ours Dr. Dick Hesse, K-State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, looks at the recent emergence of swine coronaviruses, from a virologist’s perspective. Dr. Hesse looks at several coronaviruses from across the world and what they are characteristically doing. Dr. Hesse says "What is theirs will be ours", taking aim at the fact that viruses are global and do not know about political boarders. Surveillance needs to be developed and include pathway analysis.

How Does PEDv Spread?

Dr. Andres Perez - Spatial Epidemiology of PED VirusSpatial Approach To Understanding PEDv Dr. Andres Perez, University of Minnesota, Associate Professor, aims to use mapping (spatial and temporal) to help better understand porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv) and how it might spread. Dr. Perez shows there were areas and times at highest risk for disease and that disease spread on specific directions.
