Webinar focuses on managing endemic IAV-S in sow herds

Boehringer Ingelheim and National Hog Farmer present the Sept. 20 webinar.

Influenza A virus in swine is endemic in nearly three quarters of U.S. sow herds, creating challenges for producers and veterinarians and leading to major economic consequences.

In a Sept. 20 webinar, Clayton Johnson and Aaron Lower of Carthage Veterinary Service Ltd. will provide an overview of their approach to managing IAV-S within Carthage System farms, including new IAV-S control strategies they’ve put in place to help better manage the disease. They will discuss the results of those strategies not only among the sow herds themselves, but also among the growing pigs coming out of those herds.

National Hog Farmer’s Senior Staff Writer Kevin Schulz will moderate the webinar that starts at 1 p.m. (Central) on Sept. 20.

Participants will also learn more about:

• IAV-S transmission through all phases of swine production
• Why and how IAV-S becomes endemic in sow herds
• The impact of sow herd IAV-S endemicity on pig production

The presenters will also demonstrate how the Infection Chain, a whole-herd approach to disease management from Boehringer Ingelheim, is helping break the cycle of endemicity among sow herds.
