3 BVD-infection-risk_ Voluntary BVDV-eradication program 2001Voluntary BVDV-eradication program in breeding herds 2004 Compulsory national BVDV-eradication program in Austria (01-Aug-2004) in all cattle herds (with the exeption of fattening herds) BVDV-infection-risk BVDV-eradication in Styria (Scandinavian eradication scheme)

4 BVD-infection-risk_2004 Tests for BVDV (antibodies, BVD-virus) of all animals intended for common pastures (since March 2001) Tests for BVDV (antibodies, BVD-virus) of all animals intended for breeding market places (since 2001) Repeated bulk milk tests for antibodies to BVDV (2001 – 2004: 2 times a year in breeding herds only) Voluntary BVDV-eradication program in breeding herds BVDV-infection-risk

5 BVD-infection-risk_2004 Repeated spot tests to identify/monitor presumably non-infected herds (depending on bulk milk test results) Investigations for BVDV in herds identified as possibly infected; removal of the PI-animals Follow-up tests of all calves born during one year after removal of the last PI from the herd Certification of herds which proved to be free of BVDV BVDV-infection-risk Voluntary BVDV-eradication program in breeding herds

13 BVD-infection-risk_2004 in the course of a voluntary BVDV-eradication program ? Scandinavian eradication sheme Eradication without vaccination in a cattle-population which is only in part covered by the BVDV-eradication program ? 4,412 breeding herds (25.4 % of all cattle herds in Styria) 147,000 cattle (43.6 % of all bovines in Styria) in a cattle-population in which putting cattle to common pastures and purchase of cattle is widespread ? 35,000 cattle from 4,100 herds put to common pastures per season Up to 26,000 cattle (10,500 female, 15,500 male) are purchased BVDV-infection-risk How does BVDV-infection-risk develop...

14 BVD-infection-risk_2004 Exposures: Common pastures Cattle trade (purchase) BVD-control program (overall risk) Risk assessment BVDV-infection-risk Periods of time: Time before the beginning of the BVDV-eradication program (2001) compared to the first 30 months after the implementation of the BVDV-eradication program (2003) For the period from Aug-2002 to Jul-2003 compared to the period from Aug-2003 to Jul-2004

15 BVD-infection-risk_ / 2001 – 06 / 2001: BVD-tests in cattle intended for common pastures and follow-up tests in breeding herds Deadline* for new infections in breeding herds sending cattle to common pastures: / 2001 – 12 / 2001: bulk milk tests and follow-up tests in all breeding herds Deadline* for new infections in breeding herds not sending cattle to common pastures : Risk assessment * Date of birth of the oldest detected PI-animal per herd BVDV-infection-risk

16 BVD-infection-risk_2004 RISK RATIO (RR) R elative measure of the difference in risk between the exposed and unexposed population. Def.: The rate of disease among the exposed divided by the rate of the diseased among the unexposed. A relative risk of 2 means that the exposed group has twice the disease risk as the unexposed group. ODDS RATIO (OR) W ay of assessing whether the probability of a certain event is the same for two groups. Def.: Odds of diseased being exposed divided by odds of not diseased being exposed. An odds ratio greater than one implies that the event is more likely in the first group. An odds ratio less than one implies that the event is less likely in the first group. RR = a * (c + d) / c * (a + b) OR = (a / c) / (b / d) Measures of risk 95% CI = 95% confidence-intervall BVDV-infection-risk

17 BVD-infection-risk_2004 Compared to the time before the implementation of the eradication program, the risk of BVDV-infections in herds using common pastures, was at least 4 times lower during the first 30 months of the eradication program. RR = 5,22 * OR = 5,77 * RR/OR for breeding herds sharing common pastures with other herds before and after the implementation of the BVDV-eradication program 95% CI: [ 3.83 – 7.11] 95% CI: [ 4.19 – 7.97] * = p < 0,05 * first 30 months BVDV-infection-risk

18 BVD-infection-risk_2004 Compared to the time before the beginning of the eradication program, the risk of BVDV-infections in herds with purchased cattle was considered to be at least 8 times lower after the eradication program had been established. RR = 10,32 * OR = 11,45 * RR/OR for breeding herds with purchased cattle before and after the implementation of the BVDV-eradication program 95% CI: [ 7.17 – 14.87] 95% CI: [ 7.89 – 16.62] * = p < 0,05 * first 30 months BVDV-infection-risk

19 BVD-infection-risk_2004 In 2001 the overall risk of BVDV-infections in breeding herds in Styria appeared to be times higher than after the implementation of the BVDV-eradication program. RR = 6.27 * OR = 6.81 * RR/OR for breeding herds in Styria - overall risk before and after the implementation of the BVDV-eradication program 95% CI: [ 4.79 – 8.20] 95% CI: [ 5.16 – 8.97] * = p < 0,05 * first 30 months BVDV-infection-risk

24 BVD-infection-risk_2004 The BVDV-eradication program in Styria was successful in decreasing the BVDV-infection risk significantly New BVDV-infections could not be totally ruled out under the conditions of the voluntary BVDV-eradication program in Styria New infections could be explained in almost all cases by incom- pliance with the conditions of the BVDV-eradication program A further decrease of the risk of BVDV-infections requires the introduction of a compulsory BVDV-eradication program for all herds BVDV-infection-risk Conclusion:
