Quantitative assessment of the risk of introduction of bovine viral diarrhea virus in Danish dairy herds.
A quantitative risk assessment was carried out to estimate the likelihood of introducing bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) in Danish dairy herds per year and per trimester, respectively. The present study gives important information on the impact of risk mitigation measures and sources of uncertain...
Comparison of time to PRRSv-stability and production losses between two exposure programs to control PRRSv in sow herds.
To control and eliminate porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSv) from breeding herds, some veterinarians adopt a strategy called load-close-expose which consists of interrupting replacement pig introduction for several months and exposing the pigs to a replicating PRRSv. This was...
Local cattle movements in response to ongoing bovine tuberculosis zonation and regulations in Michigan, USA.
Bovine tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis) is an ongoing management issue in the state of Michigan with eradication from livestock as the ultimate goal. Eradication has been a challenge owing to the presence of a wildlife reservoir; competing interests in managing the livestock and wildlife hosts; an...
Risk factors for foot-and-mouth disease in Zambia, 1981-2012.
The aim of this study was to describe the spatial distribution of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) outbreaks in Zambia for the period January 1981-December 2012 and to quantify the association between geographical features (proximity to roads, national parks, wetland areas) and the spatial distribution...
Why are simple control options for Toxocara vitulorum not being implemented by cattle and buffalo smallholder farmers in South-East Asia?
We examined treatment practices and knowledge of smallholder farmers of this parasite plus determined annual calf morbidity and mortality and identified potential risk factors for these estimates. Interviews were conducted with 273 smallholder farmers who had calves tested for T. vitulorum 4-6 month...
Inferring relationships between clinical mastitis, productivity and fertility: a recursive model application including genetics, farm associ...
A dataset of test-day records, fertility traits, and one health trait including 1275 Brown Swiss cows kept in 46 small-scale organic farms was used to infer relationships among these traits based on recursive Gaussian-threshold models. Test-day records included milk yield (MY), protein percentage (P...
Herd-level factors associated with the presence of bovine viral diarrhoea virus in herds participating in the voluntary phase of the Irish n...
A risk factor study was conducted to identify variables associated with initial positive or inconclusive results for bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) in ear punch samples collected from calves between 1st January and 15th July 2012 (the study period) as part of the voluntary phase of the Irish na...
Factors associated with herd restriction and de-restriction with bovine tuberculosis in British cattle herds.
We used a multilevel multistate model to identify the factors affecting the probability of a herd being placed under restriction following a bTB outbreak and the factors involved in those restrictions being lifted. By modelling both transitions within the same model, we control for unobserved herd-s...
