Summary: A putative PCV3-associated disease in piglets from Southern Brazil

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 look at the results of a joint study between the Universidade Federal Do Rio Grande Do Sul, Agroceres Pic and the UMN Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory that looked at the connection between newborn piglets presenting with large caudally rotated ears and PCV3 infection.

Best of 2017 Leman series #1: C. Vilalta – Novel sampling strategies for piglets

We are launching a new series on the blog today. Once a month, we will share with you a presentation given at the 2017 Allen D. Leman swine conference, on topics that the swine group found interesting, innovative or that lead to great discussions. If there is a presentation from this year’s conference that you would like to hear again, please fill out the form at the end of this note.

To launch this series, Dr. Carles Vilalta from the University of Minnesota shares novel PRRSV sampling strategies for piglets. To listen to his presentation, click on the image below.
