Building on the best practices of Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) ControlBuilding on the best practices of Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) Control In this panel discussion from the 2016 North American PRRS Symposium, researchers and veterinarians address audience questions about the best practices of porcine reproductive & respiratory syndrome (PRRS) control. Panel members include Dr. PH Rathkjen, Boehringer Ingelheim; Dr. Roger Main, Iowa State University; Dr. Mike Roof, Boehringer Ingelheim; and Dr. Daniel Linhares, Iowa State University, Swine Health and Productivity [video].

The Microbiome In Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome

The role of the microbiome in Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS)The role of the microbiome in Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) Dr. Megan Niederwerder, Diagnostic Medicine/Pathobiology, Kansas State University, shares the role of the microbiome in PRRS, possibly as an alternative tool to improve the disease response in pigs. Dr. Niederwerder states the microbiome may be used as an alternative tool and novel intervention strategy for management of infectious disease in swine [video].

Update on the host genetics of resistance to porcine diseasesUpdate on the host genetics of resistance to porcine diseases Dr. Jack Dekkers, Animal Breeding and Genetics, Department of Animal Science, Iowa State University, gives an update on the host genetics of resistance to porcine diseases. Dr. Dekkers outlines the experimental trials he is working on that have co-infection of nursery pigs: PRRS + PCV2 (incl. PRRS vaccination) [video].
