In this episode, AABP Executive Director Dr. Fred Gingrich talks with AABP Past President Dr. John Davidson. Dr. Davidson is the senior associate director of beef professional veterinary services with Boehringer Ingelheim (BI). BI is a platinum level sponsor of the 53rd AABP Annual Conference.

 

Dr. Davidson reviews the history of bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) in the US and the shift from Type 1a to Type 1b. BI has developed a website to track sample submissions for typing BVDV and results show 72% of samples submitted are Type 1b. We discuss the prevention and control strategies for beef and dairy operations including testing to identify persistently (PI) animals, biosecurity, and working with your veterinarian to develop a vaccination program, including the use of modified-live vaccines such as Pyramid 5 + Presponse SQ.

 

We discuss some of the peer-reviewed publications on BVD Type 1b and vaccination:

·         Fulton R., et. al -  Vaccine Immune Response to bovine viral diarrhea vaccines (BVDV) detecting antibodies to BVDV subtypes 1a, 1b, 2a and 2c

·         Leyh R. et. al  - American Journal of Veterinary Research JVR Fetal protection in heifers vaccinated with a modified-live virus vaccine containing bovine viral diarrhea virus subtypes 1a and 2a and exposed during gestation to cattle persistently infected with bovine viral diarrhea virus subtype 1b+

·         Chase C. – Biologicals The impact of BVDV Infection on Adaptive Immunity

·         Wittum T. et. al – “Persistent bovine viral diarrhoea virus infection in US beef herds

 

Dr. Davidson wraps up the program with the Boehringer Ingelheim message “Cattle First” and what the message means to him and his colleagues. You can find the documentary produced by BI featuring the Johnson Family from Flying Diamond Ranch from Colorado at https://bit.ly/3gFWxlm
