Our seventh presentation is by Dr. Andreia Arruda from the Ohio State University regarding the impact people can have on PRRS elimination success.Continue reading “Best of Leman 2018 series #7: A Arruda – PRRS, PeRRSons and networks”
We launched a new series on the blog last year. Once a month, we are sharing with you a presentation given at the Allen D. Leman swine conference, on topics that the swine group found interesting, innovative or that lead to great discussions.
We can find all of the presentations selected from last year’s conference on the blog here.
Our second presentation for this year is from Mark Schwartz from Schwartz Farms sharing their experience trying to eliminate Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae from their system.

Our second presentation today is from Dr. Paul Yeske from Swine Vet Center, who is coming back on his experience with Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae elimination and giving us an update if the herds stayed negative.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!
This is our Friday rubric: every week a new Science Page from the Bob Morrison’s Swine Health Monitoring Project. The previous editions of the science page are available on our website.
This week, we are sharing an article by Dr. Amber Stricker from Suidae Health and Production, published in PigHealthToday.com
“Over the years, there’s been considerable progress in the development of strategies aimed at eliminating porcine respiratory and reproductive syndrome virus (PRRSV). I define successful PRRSV elimination as the absence of clinical disease in the breeding herd and, more importantly, the absence of the vertical transmission of virus to weaned pigs. Unfortunately, successful PRRS elimination isn’t always achieved in some herds, and I have several experiences that may help answer why.”
- No break in disease cycle or insufficient herd closure
- Incomplete exposure
- Compliance problems
- Holding back pigs
- New virus introduction
- Insufficient diagnostics
