The Swine Health Information Center presented its 2017 Annual Report and the Center’s accomplishments on behalf of US pork producers at the National Pork Board meeting on January 9, 2018. The report was accepted and the Center’s efforts to protect and enhance the health of the US swine herd by providing return on the investment made in the Center validated.
When Japanese Encephalitis Virus (JEV) infects a naïve herd, the mortality rate of infected piglets is close to 100 percent; and 50 to 70 percent of sows experience reproductive failure. While JEV is endemic in Asia and the Pacific, many countries like the United States don’t have and don’t want this disease.
