Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus (BVDV)

This has been a major research and service focus for the laboratory for many years, due to the importance of BVDV in western range herds.  Dr. Todd Cornish, a pathologist at the Wyoming State Veterinary Laboratory in the Department of Veterinary Sciences, recently published an important paper describing how various methods to detect BVD compare.  Other recent studies in the department include research on the effectiveness of commercial vaccines for fetal protection, mechanisms of cytopathogenicity of BVDV, the epidemiology of BVDB in Wyoming beef herds, pestivirus infections of free-ranging North American ruminants, and the effect of BVDV on expression of host genes.  For more information on practical testing for BVDV in Wyoming ranches see  #1 and #2.

Investigator: Dr. Todd Cornish
