This study showed that the novel variant PRRSV was HP-PRRSV, and it is therefore critical to monitor PRRSV evolution in China and develop a method for controlling PRRS.
PEDV transmission through contaminated PPE occurs rapidly under modeled conditions. Biosecurity procedures are recommended.
This review provides an update on bacteriocins and their potential for use in the swine industry.
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.
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.
The objective of the research was to conduct semen parameter and conception rate analyses on the basis of growth rate and meat content.
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.
