The goal is to lose as little time as possible when looking for someone on the farm.
Question of the week 24-Feb-2015
A perfect antigenic match is ideal because it will result in little to no virus replication/damage, shedding or clinical signs. However, if the virus is similar enough to have cross-reaction, the infection can be reduced to as few as 2-4 days.
PRRSV does not favour infection by H. parasuis by reducing the population of alveolar macrophages, but by reducing their ability to inactivate the bacteria.
It seems that the currently used cotton ropes are an appropriate choice for sample collection in PRRSV monitoring.
Therefore, our results suggest that low birth weight has minimal impact on meat quality.
These results suggest that some salivary metabolites could be biomarkers of the pre‐pubertal stage in gilts.
PCR is expensive relative to other diagnostic methods.It should be kept in mind that a positive result on PCR indicates the presence of viral RNA and does not necessarily indicate the presence of infectious PRRSV.
Tool that allows you to calculate the replacement rate in your farm.
These results suggest that it is possible to manipulate dietary insulin response in cyclic gilts and, thus, improve reproductive efficiency when feeding starch as the main energy source during the late luteal and follicular phases of the cycle.
