Episode 25: PRRS Virus 144 Lineage 1C
Pig farmers across the world have been dealing with the effects of PRRS for decades. Continued research shows different strains of the virus have evolved over time, making it difficult to control. PIPESTONE is working to get answers on how to slow the spread of PRRS and best management practices moving forward. Join Dr. Spencer Wayne, Host and Veterinarian with Pipestone Veterinary Services to get the latest on PRRS Virus 144 Lineage 1C from Dr. Scott Dee, Director of Applied Research and Dr. Karyn Havas, Transboundary Animal Disease Research Consultant. In this 25th episode of Swine Time, we get to the bottom of all things PRRS. PRRS virus is very clever. It mutates as it passes from pig to pig, resulting in the generation of new variants. Occasionally, these new variants establish themselves and become pathogenic, such as PRRS 144 Lineage 1C. In the months July through September, Pipestone Applied Research, under the direction of Dr. Scott Dee, will be running a set of projects to better understand how this virus works and what pig farmers can do to reduce its effect. Dr. Karyn Havas also sheds light on some of the most common ways PRRS virus is spreading according to her research from the Pipestone Management data. Listen here to get insight into the tests they will be running.

Episode 23: The Latest on Disease Feed Risk with Dr. Scott Dee
Based on the current body of knowledge, it is evident that feed and feed ingredients are risk factors for the transboundary spread of viruses, including African Swine Fever virus, classical swine fever virus, pseudorabies virus, and porcine epidemic diarrhea virus. Dr. Spencer Wayne, Host of SwineTime Podcast with Pipestone Veterinary Services visits with Dr. Scott Dee, Veterinarian and Director of Pipestone Applied Research, on a recent SwineTime podcast about the latest on disease feed risk. It is proven that all viruses can survive in feed and can be transmitted through consumption of feed. This evidence is something we now can utilize and pay attention to. A group of scientists from PIPESTONE, South Dakota State University, Kansas State University and Plum Island are working together to study the risk of viral survival and viral transmission in feed, particularly looking at a wide variety of diseases including PED, ASF, Pseudorabies, PRRS, and Seneca Valley Virus A.

Podcast 20: Influenza: History, Symptoms, and Eradication Protocols with Dr. Cameron Schmitt
Over the years, veterinarians and the pork industry have tackled eradiation protocols for viruses like PRRS, PED, and Mycoplasma, yet influenza remains a common occurrence in the field. In this Episode, host Dr. Spencer Wayne talks with Dr. Cameron Schmitt, Veterinarian with PIPESTONE, in the 20th episode of SwineTime about Swine Influenza and efforts to prove an eradication protocol. Pig farmers and veterinarians in the U.S. are all too familiar with the warning signs of influenza in their herds. Sows off feed, minor abortion levels, mortality in GDU, and lower pig wean weights are seen in the sow farm, while pigs in the finisher will show a mild cough and off feed. Dr. Schmitt notes that since finishers have static populations, a break will run its course in 70 days; however, it is much more difficult to eliminate in a sow farm since new gilts and baby piglets are constantly being introduced. With this challenge in mind, Dr. Schmitt is working with ten PIPESTONE managed sow farms to evaluate an influenza eradiation protocol. “We continue to strive for better health. Influenza is one component we think we can make a big impact on. Our goal is to eliminate flu from a farm and make a flu negative sow unit,” stated Dr. Schmitt. Dr. Schmitt discusses the three large components of their eradication strategy which include an extended quarantine period for gilts coming in, utilization of autogenous vaccines for the specific strain on that farm, and moving restrictions.

Episode 17: The importance, effectiveness, and cost of sow farm filtration systems
While the use of air filtration systems on sow farms has been proven to reduce the incidence of airborne illness such as PRRS, there are still many swine operations that operate without it. While the design of physical structures vary, most if not all operations can reduce overall cost per pig if the correct filtration system is used in conjunction with current biosecurity standards. While physical operations can be structured as either positive or negative pressure set-ups, SwineTime host, Dr. Spencer Wayne, discusses with Hannah Walkes the President of Pipestone Veterinary Services, Pipestone’s utilization of filters on their negative pressure managed farms and how their adoption has reduced overall cost per pig. Overall, the used of filtration systems dramatically improved overall pig health consistency when compared to data obtained prior to its implementation.
