abstract
A serosurvey for viruses associated with reproductive disorders was conducted in 25 conventional Belgian farms. Serum antibody titers for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2), porcine parvovirus (PPV), porcine enteroviruses (PEV) and swine influenza viruses (SIV) were determined in gilts and sows. All the animals were seropositive for PCV2 and >95% were seropositive for all 4 embryopathogenic PEV serotypes. Consequently, special preventive measures appear to be unnecessary for these viruses. In I farm, non-vaccinated gilts were found to run a risk of developing PPV-induced reproductive disorders. Vaccination against PPV could exclude this risk. In 10 farms, gilts seronegative for one or more specific SIV subtypes were introduced into a herd that had previously been infected with the same subtypes. Vaccination of gilts against SIV may prevent reproductive disorders in gilts and respiratory problems in their offspring. In I farm, newly purchased gilts that were possibly shedding PRRSV were introduced into a PRRSV seronegative sow herd. Serological screening prior to purchase or vaccination of the sows could have resolved this dangerous situation.
