BVDV Management: BVDV Surveillance

Abstract

Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) control programs should include identification and removal of the BVDV persistently infected (PI) animal, biosecurity, biocontainment and surveillance. Surveillance of BVDV in herds previously identified as having persistently infected animals and for herds of unknown BVDV status are the focus of this discussion. Issues discussed are considerations for tests used in BVDV surveillance programs, population for surveillance and timing of testing.
