Although Seneca Valley Virus has been identified in swine herds in the US since the 1980s, it has only been in the last couple of years that the virus has been associated with clinical disease that includes the same vesicular lesions seen in cases of foot and mouth disease.
The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) has introduced a new project for on-farm surveillance testing of Senecavirus A to find out if Ontario swine farms have been exposed to the virus.
PEDv outbreaks this year have forced producers to take a hard look at biosecurity, and those lessons may lay the groundwork against future pig diseases.
UK pig keepers are being reminded not to feed kitchen scraps to animals to prevent disease outbreaks.
The US reported 200 cases of Seneca Valley Virus in 2015, but in 2017 there were 300 cases reported in just Wisconsin.
The symptoms of Senecavirus A, a disease that mimics foot and mouth disease, is gaining a foothold in the US.
There are Staphylococcus aureus infections going completely under the radar, and there is no knowledge of how common these are in people with livestock contact in the US.
