Procine Circoviral Disease (PCVD) still frightens the pig world. Now
solutions are coming onto the market, the disease should not cause anxiety any
longer. That is the message of the new series 'PCVD - From pathogenesis to
protection', that will run in five issues of Pig Progress in the coming year.
The virus created a lot of anxiety and worries as it
hit North America in 2005, and problems are still on-going. Europe was hit
earlier, in 1997, with a big wave a few years later, and many European producers
are now fighting the disease on a more chronic level. Many farmers have adjusted
their management to the situation, however, mortality rates and runts have still
not returned to the levels before the actual PCVD outbreak. In this series, that
lost ground is reclaimed.
