Greg Cline, BIVI professional services veterinarian, explains BIVI SOURCE - one-stop resource for information on PEDV and PRRS for hog farmers.
According to Greg Cline, ..., 2 Mar 2015 [cached]
According to Greg Cline, DVM, technical manager for enteric disease products at BIVI, SOURCE is a six-step systematic approach to PED prevention and control featuring one of the industry's most complete information resources on PED. It was developed based on the company's decades of experience and extensive research with other highly infectious swine diseases.
"SOURCE is a logical, science-based approach to PED control and management. This approach and its principles have proven highly effective in helping the industry manage other costly swine diseases," Cline says.
"We've taken proven concepts and the benefits of a holistic approach to analyzing disease goals, risk and management, and added much of what we've recently learned about PED, to develop sound, practical management protocols that producers can implement into their specific operations."
SOURCE is an acronym, with each letter representing one of six steps in the protocol: State desired goals; Obtain current status; Understand current risk factors; Reduce risk factors; Construct solutions; and Execute and monitor solutions.
"The first step - state desired goals - is often overlooked and probably the most important protocol as it ultimately impacts all the other steps in the process," Cline explains.
"No other animal health company brings together the breadth of technical information, field-applicable research and management protocols in a single program to help producers and veterinarians better manage PED," Cline adds.

The first initiative, according to Greg Cline, DVM, technical manager of swine enteric disease at BIVI, is a PED applied research commitment of up to $50,000 in research funds supporting the development of knowledge and tools targeting the practical management of PED.
"We will be focused on helping the industry to find answers to some of the most critical questions regarding PED," noted Cline in an interview. "From our long research history with PRRS, Lawsonia intracellularis, PCV2 and other diseases, we continue our commitment to finding solutions through applicable research targeted toward the tough problems that plague the swine industry."
The second initiative is the "PED News" service that BIVI is sponsoring in partnership with the University of Californi, Davis' Center of Animal Disease Modeling and Surveillance (CADMS) department. Cline said the program is similar to CADMS' "FMD News" service where subscribers can receive news clips daily or weekly from around the world that highlights all the news and research related to PED.
"We saw a need for this type of information-sharing service to help the North American swine industry stay as current as possible with the all the PED-related information," said Cline who noted that the disease was first identified in the U.S. in April of 2013 and to date, there is no vaccine or antibiotic available to fight the disease. He said that these two initiatives were designed to help discover, coordinate and share information related to PED that may be useful in helping vets and producers better prevent, manage and control this disease.
"Because this highly contagious disease is relatively new to the U.S. and its impact on producers can be so devastating, it's critical that everyone work together to find effective solutions and share information," Cline said. "These two initiatives should help us to better understand this highly contagious disease and how to more effectively manage PED."

"Among traditional enteric diseases ..., 29 Aug 2014 [cached]
"Among traditional enteric diseases affecting pigs today, Salmonella is one of the most widespread, resilient organisms and for many producers, may be a common cause of lost production on farms," said Greg Cline, DVM, technical manager for enteric products at BIVI.
"Extensive research has documented the vaccine's effectiveness against both types of Salmonella", Cline said.
"After the 14-day Salmonella Choleraesuis challenge period, clinical signs were significantly reduced in the vaccinated pigs" he said. "Specifically, there was no dehydration, mortality, abnormal body condition or fever. No clinical signs or adverse events from the vaccine were reported."
Results of the Salmonella Typhimurium study also are encouraging.
"Vaccinated pigs had a significant reduction in clinical disease," Cline said.
"Immunization, along with the implementation of proper sanitation programs, biosecurity protocols and diagnostic tools, can reduce the impact of salmonellosis in your swine herd, improve the safety of the pork you provide and increase farm profitability," Cline adds.
