Frequently asked questions ›
Early diagnosis and prevention of reproductive diseases can help reduce risk of financial loss
We've all heard the horror stories. A ranch that typically sees calving rates over 90% suddenly has a storm of open cows and abortions, and the calving rate drops to 50% or lower. Too late, the rancher discovers the herd is infected with a reproductive disease such as bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) or trichomoniasis (Trich). Losses at that level, or even less profound reductions in reproductive efficiency, add up to a major economic impact to the operation.
Sampling guidelines— We have created a series of best practice leaflets to support veterinarians with a simple guide to how, where, and when to take samples from pigs for submission to diagnostic laboratories. Each leaflet describes a different sampling technique, as well as the number of samples required for different types of diagnostic strategies. The relevance of different types of diagnostic tests is also covered, along with recommendations for the labeling, storage, and transport of various sample types.
