NCBA and NIAA to Sponsor a Prevention Strategies Forum on BVD in Kansas City April 7th

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 09:54:48 CST

The National Institute for Animal Agriculture will be hosting a BVD Forum for beef producers and animal health officials in conjunction with the NIAA Annual Conference, April 4-7, 2016. The forum “BVD: An Industry Prevention Strategies & Solutions Forum” will be April 7, 2016 at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown in Kansas City, Mo.

“Disease prevention through vaccination and proper biosecurity is an important component of the Beef Quality Assurance program,” said Josh White, Executive director of Producer Education for the National Cattleman’s Beef Association and the BVD Forum Planning Committee Co-Chair. “Re-considering how we manage health risk in our herds is a valuable exercise and BVD provides an excellent example of a disease that can be successfully managed.”

BVD affects all segments of the beef and dairy industries. While there is a great deal of knowledge on the disease, the virus still presents various challenges to cattle producers.

“Veterinarians and researchers have worked together with cattle producers to develop BVD control strategies based on utilization of accurate diagnostic tests and effective immunization protocols,” Dr. Robert Larson, Coleman Chair in Production Medicine at Kansas State University said.”Because of management differences between different segments of the U.S. cattle herd and variation in risk factors between individual herds, optimum BVD control and prevention strategies will vary greatly between herds. This forum provides an opportunity for researchers, veterinarians, and producers to share the latest developments in our understanding of BVD virus and its control.”

Larson hopes to see a variety of outcomes from the forum including: improved understanding of the virus, increased cost-effectiveness of control and prevention strategies and effective implementation of control strategies in a variety of production strategies.

“Anyone with an interest in updating their knowledge of BVD and its prevention and control should come to the forum, including: researchers, veterinarians, Extension educators, and cattle producers,” Larson said.

The forum will be held April 7, 2016, in conjunction with the NIAA Annual Conference which runs April 4-7, 2016 in Kansas City, Mo. at the Downtown Marriott. For more information about the BVD session, visit the NIAA website.
