Risk assessment of nitrate and nitrite in feed

Highest mean exposure estimates of 53 and 60 mg nitrate/kg bw per day in grass silage‐based diets for beef cattle and fattening goats, respectively, may raise a health concern for ruminants when compared ...

Seroprevalence of border disease virus and other pestiviruses in sheep in Algeria and associated risk factors.

climate, landscape, flock management and presence of other ruminant species in the farm. CONCLUSION: These high seroprevalence rates suggest that BDV is widespread and is probably endemic all over the ...

Seroprevalence and risk factors related to small ruminant lentivirus infections in Belgian sheep and goats.

Abstract: Maedi-Visna virus (MVV) and caprine arthritis encephalitis virus (CAEV) are two prototype members of the group of small ruminant lentiviruses (SRLV s). Both result in progressive and persistent ...

Akabane, Aino and Schmallenberg virus-where do we stand and what do we know about the role of domestic ruminant hosts and Culicoides vectors in virus transmission and overwintering?

Abstract: Akabane, Aino and Schmallenberg virus belong to the Simbu serogroup of Orthobunyaviruses and depend on Culicoides vectors for their spread between ruminant hosts. Infections of adults are mostly ...

Unchanged Schmallenberg virus seroprevalence in the Belgian sheep population after the vector season of 2014 and 2015 despite evidence of virus circulation.

Seroepidemiologic Studies Sheep Sheep Diseases Abstract: Schmallenberg virus (SBV) emerged in North-Western Europe in 2011 and induces congenital defects in ruminants. Many epidemiological studies were undertaken to ...

Evidence of extensive renewed Schmallenberg virus circulation in Belgium during summer of 2016- increase in arthrogryposis-hydranencephaly cases expected.

Culicoides obsoletus complex midges collected in the region of Antwerp in August 2016, reaching a minimum infection rate of 3%. The recirculation of SBV in the largely unprotected ruminant population during ...

Review: Capripoxvirus Diseases: Current Status and Opportunities for Control.

Babiuk, S; Babiuk, L A Source: Transbound Emerg Dis, Volume 64, Issue 3, p.729-745 (2017) Abstract: Lumpy skin disease, sheeppox and goatpox are high-impact diseases of domestic ruminants with a devastating ...

Outbreak investigations and molecular characterization of foot-and-mouth disease viruses circulating in south-west Niger.

herd composition (presence of both cattle and small ruminants) was significantly associated with FMDV seropositivity as defined by NSP-positive results (p-value = .006). Of these positive sera, ...
