Special edition of Pig Health Today captures presentations from 2-day PRRS conference

Pig Health Today has published a free, 32-page special report, “Framing the Future of PRRS,” with news summaries of eight presentations by veterinarians and scientists specializing in porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS).

Speakers included Scott Dee, DVM, PhD, Pipestone Applied Research; Montserrat Torremorell, DVM, PhD, University of Minnesota; and three specialists from Iowa State University — Derald Holtkamp, DVM; Jeff Zimmerman, DVM, PhD; and Daniel Linhares, DVM, PhD.

In addition, two PRRS specialists from Zoetis — Jay Calvert, PhD, and Jose Angulo, DVM — shared insights on vaccine development and predictive analytics to enhance PRRS-=management decision-making.

The booklet also reports on what is believed to be the last presentation delivered by the late Bob Morrison, DVM, PhD, University of Minnesota, who perished in an auto accident in Europe only days after the two-day PRRS meeting. The conference’s sponsor, Zoetis, dedicated the booklet in Dr. Morrison’s memory.

  • Early PRRS vaccination helps protect pigs through slaughter

    A new, single-dose vaccine for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) has been shown to protect pigs from before weaning to slaughter, helping prevent secondary infections and performance losses associated with the costly disease.

  • Data can help improve PRRS control

    Implementing metrics and utilizing predictive analytics can help pork producers improve their management of PRRS.

  • Swine Health Monitoring Project expanding but needs more industry participants

    The Swine Health Monitoring Project continues to expand but ultimately needs data from 90% of the industry to reach its long-term goal of supporting the response to emerging pathogens, said the late Bob Morrison, DVM, PhD, coordinator of the project.

  • Breeding sows without CD163 gene might ultimately eliminate PRRS virus

    Sows without the CD163 gene are not only resistant to porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus, they also give birth to healthy, normal piglets — a finding that could ultimately lead to elimination of a devastating disease.
