What Do They Do There?

Dr. Rodger Main - Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) DiagnosticsUnderstanding The Diagnostic Activities Dr. Rodger Main, Iowa State University, outlines what the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (VDL) group does and how it works on samples. Dr. Main details their findings on Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) over time & geography, plus wraps up with information on testing equipment, PEDv reporting, and future of information tools for diseases.

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.

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.
