Recombinant Ad5-O1Man is an effective, safe and cross-reacting vaccine that could potentially be used preventively and in outbreak situations, to control FMDV O Mya-98 lineage in swine.
Antibiotic Use In Swine Production - Where Is It At And Where Is It Going? - Dr. Peter Davies, from the 2016 Allen D. Leman Swine Conference, September 17-20, 2016, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.
Question of the week 25-May-2017
The farms that apply more vaccines are the ones that score the best in internal biosecurity. The change towards prevention directly leads to both greater use of vaccines and better internal biosecurity, as they are the only means we know to prevent the disease.
Minimizing sow losses in the initial cycles has three positive effects for the economic efficiency of the farm

Autolysis prevents histopathological diagnosis with special relevance to intestinal samples
With the restrictions on antimicrobial use as a preventive measure, a new era is born in the design of pre-weaning and grower diets. The transition to this new scenario must be approached in a comprehensive way.

Pelleting diets and sodium metabisulfite supplementation previously to heat conditioning may reduce the negative impact of vomitoxin in nursery pigs.
For good farmers, pigs continue to be very profitable, but for many not! Some are even losing money (incredible though it seems).
Question of the week 10-May-2017
Great care is needed particularly when handling young pigs above 6kg/3 weeks of age, to avoid causing lasting damage.

A reduction of the environmental impact derived from pig production is possible by a suitable nutrient requirement adjust.
We review critical factors associated with reproductive performance of female breeding pigs, their lifetime performance and herd productivity in commercial herds. The factors include both sow-level and herd-level factors.
What is antimicrobial resistance? Can it be transmitted between different types of bacteria? Can the same bacteria be resistant to several antibiotics? Can resistance genes be ubiquitous? Can antimicrobial resistance be measured?
China Animal Husbandry Expo, known as CAHE, is the largest livestock show in Asia. In 2017, CAHE attracted 161 655 visitors and 1 200 exhibitors from 38 countries and regions.
The objective of the research was to conduct semen parameter and conception rate analyses on the basis of growth rate and meat content.
Although the better sow and litter performance for group housed sows with electronic feeding system some improvements are still required in terms of body scratch and locomotion disorders.
The study objective was to characterize body temperature and activity changes in replacement gilts at the onset of estrus in order to provide initial data to develop a remote estrus detection system for commercial swine operations.
Tool that allows you to calculate the replacement rate in your farm.
The decrease in PCV2a and PCV2b genotypes over time and the increase in PCV2d in 2012 may be due more to other, unknown, factors than to immunological selection resulting from PCV2a-based vaccination.
Dietary supplementation with microalgae as an alternative to antibiotic use was studied.
The Swine Gut Microbiota: Status and Outlook - Dr. Heather Allen, National Animal Disease Center, USDA, from the 2016 Allen D. Leman Swine Conference, September 17-20, 2016, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.
These results further demonstrated the potential use of oral fluids for detecting FMDV genome, live virus, and viral antigens.
Continued emergence of producer owned packing is setting up a new closed market channel which may evolve its own pricing structures which take it farther and farther from the common, historical patterns.
It is important to study the diversity of the strains of Yersinia enterocolitica in order to better understand the risk they represent for humans.
