Home / Products / Pork / Fostera Gold PCV MH / Lurking Threats
There are four known PCV2 genotypes present in U.S. swine herds: PCV2a, PCV2b, PCV2d and occasionally PCV2e, with prevalence shifting in the past several years to PCV2b1 and now PCV2d.2 PCV2d was originally referred to as mutant PCV2b,3 and sequence analysis confirms that it is more similar to PCV2b than to PCV2a.4 Until now, all commercial PCV2 vaccines contained a single PCV2 genotype, meaning you could have less coverage against more prevalent or evolving strains in circulation.5-8
When clinical pneumonia is decreasing herd productivity, you might start looking for a single culprit, such as PCV2 or M. hyo. But complex respiratory challenges are rarely caused by just one pathogen.
Viral and bacterial infectious agents can open the door for one another when a pig’s immune system is compromised. An M. hyo infection can last 15 to 28 weeks after initial exposure.13-16
Fostera® Gold PCV MH can help you protect your operation from PCV2 and M. hyo.
