Canada: Government supports new animal health control strategies

The research will target Brachyspira hampsonii, a recently discovered bacterium that causes diarrhea and colitis in pigs.

Thursday 8 January 2015 (3 years 1 months 13 days ago)

Canadian Government announced an investment of $260,000 to the Saskatchewan Pork Development Board (Sask Pork) to help control two diseases that threaten swine and beef herds in Canada.

The research will target Brachyspira hampsonii, a recently discovered bacterium that causes diarrhea and colitis in pigs. Scientists will also seek to gain a better understanding of bovine genital campylobacteriosis (BCG) or “vibriosis” that can significantly reduce pregnancy rates among breeding cattle. Both studies will include diagnostics, surveillance and trials involving live animals.
