Her minute long videos range in topics from pig care to food labels and much more.

Episode 25: PRRS Virus 144 Lineage 1C
Pig farmers across the world have been dealing with the effects of PRRS for decades. Continued research shows different strains of the virus have evolved over time, making it difficult to control. PIPESTONE is working to get answers on how to slow the spread of PRRS and best management practices moving forward.
Join Dr. Spencer Wayne, Host and Veterinarian with Pipestone Veterinary Services to get the latest on PRRS Virus 144 Lineage 1C from Dr. Scott Dee, Director of Applied Research and Dr. Karyn Havas, Transboundary Animal Disease Research Consultant. In this 25th episode of Swine Time, we get to the bottom of all things PRRS.
PRRS virus is very clever. It mutates as it passes from pig to pig, resulting in the generation of new variants. Occasionally, these new variants establish themselves and become pathogenic, such as PRRS 144 Lineage 1C. In the months July through September, Pipestone Applied Research, under the direction of Dr. Scott Dee, will be running a set of projects to better understand how this virus works and what pig farmers can do to reduce its effect. Dr. Karyn Havas also sheds light on some of the most common ways PRRS virus is spreading according to her research from the Pipestone Management data.
Listen here to get insight into the tests they will be running.

Episode 23: The Latest on Disease Feed Risk with Dr. Scott Dee
Based on the current body of knowledge, it is evident that feed and feed ingredients are risk factors for the transboundary spread of viruses, including African Swine Fever virus, classical swine fever virus, pseudorabies virus, and porcine epidemic diarrhea virus.
Dr. Spencer Wayne, Host of SwineTime Podcast with Pipestone Veterinary Services visits with Dr. Scott Dee, Veterinarian and Director of Pipestone Applied Research, on a recent SwineTime podcast about the latest on disease feed risk. It is proven that all viruses can survive in feed and can be transmitted through consumption of feed. This evidence is something we now can utilize and pay attention to.
A group of scientists from PIPESTONE, South Dakota State University, Kansas State University and Plum Island are working together to study the risk of viral survival and viral transmission in feed, particularly looking at a wide variety of diseases including PED, ASF, Pseudorabies, PRRS, and Seneca Valley Virus A.
