Threats Adapt Are You Ready? An in depth look at the PCV2 Genotype and current coverage

Thursday, June 7, 2018
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Varied Industries Building, Meeting Room B

Porcine circovirus Type 2 (PCV2) is one of the most expensive disease challenges you face on your operation. Combine PCV2 with a co-infection, such as Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyo), and you could lose up to $20 per pig. That’s an unwanted surprice that affects pig health and productivity. Vaccination is the best protection; however, your current vaccine may not provide broad coverage against the rapidly evolving PCV2 virus and long coverage to get more healthy pigs to market. Zoetis will discuss the genetic drift and shift in PCV2 and why it is so important to find the broadest and longest coverage for your Vaccination Program.
