Today we are sharing a paper by former MSHMP team member Juan Sanhueza, in collaboration with Drs. Cesar Corzo, Mariana Kikuti, and Declan Schroeder from the UMN swine group and multiple Midwestern swine systems. This recent publication in Preventive Veterinary Medicine looks at the impact of sow parity on the detection of PRRS virus in processing fluids.Continue reading “What is the role of parity in the detection of PRRSV in processing fluids?”
Review on the methodology to assess respiratory tract lesions in pigs and their production impact
This week, we are sharing a review article, a collaborative effort between numerous leaders in swine mycoplasmosis, including UMN Dr. Maria Pieters, regarding the methodology to assess respiratory tract lesions at the slaughter house, available in open access on the Veterinary Research website.Continue reading “Review on the methodology to assess respiratory tract lesions in pigs and their production impact”
The effect of gilt flow management during acclimation on Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae detection
Today, we are sharing a recent publication from the MycoLab investigating how two different gilt flow managements during acclimation impact Mycoplasma detection. The full publication is available on the journal’s website.Continue reading “The effect of gilt flow management during acclimation on Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae detection”
Investigation of sow mortality in a US system
A recent publication from the MSHMP team in the journal Vet Record analyzed around 10 years of production records to describe sow mortality and its associated risk factors across four different farms in the Midwest.Continue reading “Investigation of sow mortality in a US system”
Improving M. hyopneumoniae diagnostic capabilities by harnessing the infection dynamics
In this concise and straight-forward review for The Veterinary journal, Dr. Garcia-Morante in collaboration with the MycoLab at the UMN shares the latest knowledge around Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae infection and what the best practices for diagnosis are. The full article is available on the journal’s website.
- This review updates M. hyopneumoniae infection diagnosis and dynamics.
- Understanding M. hyopneumoniae infection dynamics is critical for diagnosis.
- Final diagnosis is based on clinical observations aligned with laboratory results.
