The Domestic Swine Disease Reporting System, funded by the Swine Health Information Center, collects and disseminates information on endemic and emerging diseases affecting the U.S. swine herd. Following the addition of influenza A virus in swine in April 2022, porcine circovirus type 2 information will be included starting in May 2022, in response to stakeholder requests. Monitoring these two viruses known for different clinical manifestations adds value to SDRS reports while providing needed information for producers and veterinarians.


Tracking IAV-S and PCV2, along with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus and Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, the SDRS now monitors the whole suite of porcine respiratory disease complex. Historical PCV2 data has been fully incorporated and a new page will be included in SDRS report #51. Monthly updates about PCV2 DNA detection will now be a regular component of SDRS reports and dashboards are also available on the SDRS webpage under the PCV2 detection dashboard.


SDRS, a collaborative project with data from Iowa State University, University of Minnesota, South Dakota State University, Kansas State University and Ohio Animal Disease Diagnostic Lab, is currently the only publicly available source of swine health information from veterinary diagnostic labs. SDRS reports contain information aggregated from these participating VDLs, providing data to assist veterinarians and producers in making informed decisions on disease prevention, detection and management. In addition to the porcine respiratory disease complex, SDRS also reports porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, porcine deltacoronavirus and transmissible gastroenteritis virus, the three agents classified as porcine enteric coronaviruses...
