Occurrence of classical swine fever in an organized farm of Madurai, Tamil Nadu

Author(s): Dr. MS Murugan, Dr. V Palanichamy and Dr. A Ramesh
Abstract: Due to high mortality and reproductive issues, classical swine fever (CSF) is a highly transmissible viral illness that affects pigs and causes significant economic losses. In the current investigation, cross-breed pigs raised on managed farms may have experienced a swine flu outbreak. All of 220 pigs of various ages, thirty-three perished in a span of two to three days. It was then discovered that these animals had not had a CSF vaccination. Clinical manifestations of the illness were fever, huddling, conjunctivitis, acute respiratory distress, and purpura of the chest and abdomen. Reverse transcriptase polymerization chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to employ the presence of the classical swine fever viral genes 5'UTR and E2 in blood samples taken from the suspicious animals. Blood samples from sick animals tested positive for both genes.
