The Swine Health Information Center's (SHIC) December Domestic Swine Disease Monitoring Report is available.
This month's Domestic Swine Disease Monitoring Report brings information about the increased RT-PCR detection of PRRSV in all age categories. Moreover, the number of 1-4-4 L1C variant detections in November 2022 is the highest since its emergence. However, detections are still concentrated in the Midwest, meaning that states east of the Mississippi River continue at high risk of exposure. Influenza A virus substantially increased RT-PCR positive detection in all age categories with a high number of confirmed tissue diagnoses. Also, spikes in confirmed tissue diagnoses of PRRSV, Streptococcus suis, Pasteurella multocida, Actinobacillus suis, and Mycoplasma hyorhinis. In addition, PEDV RT-PCR detection had a sharp increase in the percentage of positive submissions in the last week of November (28th), raising concern regarding the winter season.
In the podcast, SDRS hosts talk with Dr. Daniel Boykin, Director of Veterinary Services at Cactus Family Farms, about how to mitigate the co-infection of respiratory pathogens in farms, what is new in PEDV control strategies, and the increased number of Streptococcus suis diagnoses in the field.
