This case report highlights the importance of a comprehensive approach to achieve a correct differential diagnosis.
The LAMP assay established in this study provides a simple, specific, sensitive and rapid method of T. gondii genomic DNA detection, hence is expected to plays an important role in the monitoring of T. gondii contamination in various food products.
Pork production data has been just updated. Now you can see the data for 2016!!

This review summarizes data on the types of occupation-related infections caused by LA-MRSA CC398, the incidence of such infections as well as potential preventive strategies.
This article introduces us to the complex world of porcine immunology.
Held every two years in Bangkok, Thailand, VIV Asia has propelled itself to become the most important gateway to Asia’s emerging markets for professionals from throughout Asia involved in producing and processing animal proteins.

We need to understand what is happening and what the circumstances are that cause bacteria that are also present in the microbiota of healthy piglets to multiply in such a way that they are capable of causing diarrhoea.
Sows with more than 16 piglets Total Born (TB) per litter have twice as many stillbirths (SB) as those with 13 to 16 TB litters, and three times more SB than sows farrowing litters smaller than 13 TB.

Results indicate that B. hyodysenteriae has a high degree of serological heterogeneity that has probably differently developed in diverse geographical areas over time.
Although the use of vaccination was effective in stabilizing the sows, the results of these case studies emphasized that elimination of PRRSV from the nursery can only be accomplished if vaccination and partial depopulation/ disinfection are supported by strict implementation of all recommended management procedures, including AI/AO.
Understanding immunology is key to fighting swine diseases.

Compensatory Ca achievement in bone is achieved with high Ca finishing diets in pigs fed low Ca during the growing period.
Question of the week 22-Mar-2017
Captive bolt humane stunners do not kill larger growing pigs or adults, they render the pig unconscious. Further action is needed to ensure the pig is dead.
Pelleting and extrusion can potentially increase energy and nutrient digestibility of swine diets and their effects are affected by the diet composition.

Organic acid supplementation in weanling diets improves piglet performance and reduced diarrhoea.
This study showed that oral fluid-based testing could provide an easy and “animal-friendly” approach to sample collection for nucleic acid and/or antibody-based surveillance of PEDV in swine populations.
Question of the week 15-Mar-2017
We are very pleased to announce the addition of Carmen Cía to the 333 team.
Results from this study can help determine timing of antimicrobial use and contribute to our current understanding of judicious antibiotic use.
Dried pomaces supplementation in growing-fattening dieta may improve meat quality and lipid profile of pork.
The influence of feed structure and pelleting on the development of gastric ulcers in pigs is well established. Some studies have shown a beneficial effect of access to straw on gastric health. However, the role of other factors, e.g. disease and stress, is not well understood.
