Recently, Seneca Valley Virus (SVV), also known as Senecavirus A, has had an upswing in cases for grow finish hogs as well as in sow/boar market animals including in Nebraska. We do not known the reasons why we are seeing more cases, but this virus is of great concern because it looks very similar to Foot and Mouth Disease virus. Pigs have blisters on snout, feet and in their mouth. It is critically important that when folks are showing swine to be aware of this virus and alert their veterinarian immediately if they see clinical signs.
Nebraska Extension will be sponsoring a two day online childcare conference. During the two day event will provide a diverse group of experts to share evidence-based practices, resources, ideas, and the latest in research for fostering quality early learning experiences for children 0-8 years old.
