UK government scientists have published update on African swine fever.
The porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv) outbreak that devastated US hog farms served as a wake-up call for the pork industry to be more vigilant against foreign animal diseases.
The Swine Health Information Center (SHIC) is working with veterinary diagnostic labs at University of Minnesota, South Dakota State University, Iowa State University and Kansas State University to standardize the format used to send out diagnostic results.
PEDv has the potential to spread in feed or dust, but the use of a rice hull and medium chain fatty acid flush may help reduce disease presence in a feed mill, says a researcher.
The near real-time swine disease monitoring system will generate information useful for economic and animal health decision-making.
Open communication among the herd vets has been very impactful in responding to and controlling PEDv outbreaks.
The Swine Health Information Center (SHIC) has funded a study assessing tools for mitigation of Foreign Animal Disease and other transboundary pathogens in feed.
