Leman: SDRS data shows off-season uptick in late-summer PEDV cases

Dr. Giovani Trevisan and Dr. Daniel Linhares, both with the Swine Disease Reporting System (SDRS) in the United States, spoke with The Pig Site’s Sarah Mikesell at the pre-conference of the Leman Swine Conference in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA, about the status of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) in US swine herds.

“This morning was a discussion on the PED situation in the US and should we control or should we eliminate?” said Dr. Linhares. “In our talk, Dr. Giovani Trevisan and I were here to share from the Swine Disease Reporting System perspective, what's going on in herds.”

SDRS is a consortium sharing diagnostic data from six different labs in the US. The data is gathered, compiled and shared with industry. It is sponsored by the Swine Health Information Center (SHIC). The project is also receiving funding from USDA for specific research projects.

In today's episode of the Swine Health Blackbelt Podcast, we dive deep into the crucial topic of biosecurity within pig farms. As we know, biosecurity serves as a fundamental principle, pivotal to successful pig production. To discuss that, we bring in a special guest, Dr. Jeroen Dewulf, a leading Professor of Veterinary Epidemiology at Ghent University in Belgium. Dr. Dewulf has devoted a large part of his distinguished career to the study of infection prevention and biosecurity strategies, significantly contributing to the veterinary epidemiology realm. Here, Dr. Dewulf shares with us a very interesting tool on measuring biosecurity in a practical way.
