Active surveillance and impact of an intervention on PEDV occurrence in a large pig production system in the US

Today, we are sharing a recent publication from the MSHMP team led by Dr. Cesar Corzo in collaboration with a US pork producer. The full article is available in open access on the Porcine Health Management journal’s website. The objectives of this study were to actively monitor Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea in pigs during several stages of the finishing phase and to assess the impact of added biosecurity measures.

Persistence and shedding of Senecavirus A in naturally infected boars

In this recent publication from the Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation, Dr. Matt Sturos from the UMN Veterinary Diagnostic Lab shares a case report establishing the shedding of Senecavirus A through boar semen. This study highlights the importance of considering semen as a potential biosecurity risk in the case of a Senecavirus A outbreak.
