Practical Applications for Managing Biological Risks

Vector Transmission

Beef Producers


Biological risk management brm

Biological Risk Management (BRM)

  • Overall process of awareness education, evaluation, and management

  • Designed to improve infection/disease control

    • Foreign and domestic diseases

  • Provide tools to minimize risk

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Biological risk management brm1

Biological Risk Management (BRM)

  • Disease risk cannot be totally eliminated

    • Animal, its environment

    • Decrease exposure

    • Infectious agentinteractions

  • Minimize threat to animals and humans

  • No one-size-fits-all answer

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Routes of transmission

Routes of Transmission

  • Spread of disease agents

    • Animal animal

    • Animal human

  • Different modes of transmission

  • Aerosol

  • Direct contact

  • Fomite

  • Oral

  • Vector-borne

  • Zoonotic

Vector Transmission

  • Insect

  • Acquires pathogen from one animal

  • Transmits to another animal

    • Biological vectors

Routes of transmission1

Routes of Transmission

  • Apply to all infectious agents

  • Animal must be exposed to develop disease

  • Understand different routes of transmission = Gain control

  • Risk areas must be identified

    • Design protocols to minimize exposure

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Disease transmission

Disease Transmission

  • Animals may not exhibit obvious clinical signsof disease

  • Awareness of all routes of transmission is essential

    • Develop strategy to minimize disease risk for livestock operation

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


General prevention steps

General Prevention Steps

Overview

  • Farm perimeter

  • Animal identification

  • Animal health

  • Sick/dead animals

  • Isolation/quarantine

  • Supply handling

  • Neonatal management

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


General prevention steps1

General Prevention Steps

  • Limit contact with animals

    • Neighbor’s livestock

    • Wildlife, birds

    • Roaming cats, dogs

  • Maintain fences

  • Establish biosecurity protocols for delivery vehicles, personnel

  • Lock gates

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


General prevention

General Prevention

  • Identify individual animals

  • Important for:

    • Communicating health status

    • Treatment needs

    • Location on farm

    • Record keeping

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


General prevention steps2

General Prevention Steps

  • Keep health records on every animal

  • Review vaccination and treatment programs

    • Annually, bi-annually

    • Protocol versus actual

  • Investigate unusual signs, unresponsive cases

    • Neurologic, downers, sudden death

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


General prevention steps3

General Prevention Steps

  • Train farm personnel to report sick animals

    • Inspect animals daily

    • Clean equipment, boots, clothing

  • Euthanize terminally ill animals promptly and appropriately

    • Removed or rendered

  • Perform necropsy on animals that died from unknown causes

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


General prevention steps4

General Prevention Steps

  • Isolate ill animals immediately

    • No shared ventilation, direct contact with other animals

  • Quarantine newly introduced animals

    • New purchases, returning animals

  • Time determined with veterinarian

  • Test for key diseases before placing with rest of herd

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


General prevention steps5

General Prevention Steps

  • Store non-refrigeratedvaccines and antibiotics out of sunlight as it can deactivate them

  • Monitor refrigeration temperature monthly

    • Ideal temp 36-46oF

  • Restrict access to medication to only properly trained personnel

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


General prevention steps6

General Prevention Steps

  • Ensure adequate ingestion of disease-free colostrum in first 6 hours of life

  • Prevent contact with older calves, contaminated environments

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Vector control

Vector Control


Vector control1

Vector Control

  • Source reduction

    • Flies, midges, mosquitoes

  • Control adults

    • Flies, mosquitoes

  • Minimize animal interaction

    • Ticks, midges

  • Treatment protocols

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Source reduction

Source Reduction

  • Flies

    • 4 life stages

      • Egg, larva, pupa, adult

      • Cycle as short as 10 days in warm weather

    • Lay eggs in organic matter

      • Manure, feed, wet bedding

      • Disturb weekly to prevent development

    • Clean up spilled feed, feed bunks

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Source reduction1

Source Reduction

  • Fly larvicides

    • Feed additives

      • All animals on farm, 3 weeks prior to season

    • Parasitic wasps feed on fly pupa

    • Predatory mites, beetles feed on larva

  • Adulticides

    • Knockdowns for high concentrations

    • Residuals for barn walls, ceilings

    • Baits, fly traps in conjunction with other methods

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006

Source reduction2

Source Reduction

  • Biting midges

    • Lay eggs in decaying vegetation,wet soil, mud

    • Larvae need moisture, organic matter

    • Adults fly 1-2 milesfrom source

    • Manage settling ponds, stagnant water

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Disease transmission2

Disease Transmission

  • Biting midges can spread:

    • Bluetongue virus

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Source reduction3

Larva

Source Reduction

  • Mosquitoes

    • Lay single eggs in damp soil

    • Lay eggs on water surface

  • Larvae, pupae live upside down in water;

    • Breathe via siphon, trumpet at water surface

    • Larvae need organic matter for development

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Disease transmission3

Disease Transmission

  • Mosquitoes can spread:

    • West Nile virus

    • Rift Valley fever

    • Lumpy skin disease

    • Vesicular stomatitis

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Source reduction4

Source Reduction

  • Eliminate mosquito larval habitats

  • Fill tree holes

  • Empty containers that hold water weekly

  • Circulate lagoons, water tanks

  • Drill holes in or use half tires for silage piles

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Mosquito larvicides

Mosquito Larvicides

  • Use when source reduction and biological control not feasible

  • More effective and target-specific

  • Less controversial than adulticides

  • Applied to smaller geographic areas

    • Larvae concentrate in specific locations

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Control adult mosquitoes

Control Adult Mosquitoes

  • Insecticides/adulticides

  • Less efficient than source reduction

  • Require multiple applications

  • Require proper environmental conditions

    • Light wind, no rain

  • Small droplets to contact adults

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Minimize animal interaction

Minimize Animal Interaction

  • Ticks

    • Mow pastures

    • Acaricides

  • Midges

    • No effective animal treatment

    • Increase distance from source

    • Confine animals

Center for Food Security and Public Health Iowa State University 2006


Disease transmission4

Disease Transmission

  • Ticks can spread:

    • Babesiosis

    • Dermatophilus(rain rot)

    • Heartwater

    • Q fever

Summary

Summary

  • Vector borne transmission occurs everyday on farms

    • Mastitis, pink eye, anaplasmosis

  • Foreign animal diseases can also be spread via vectors

    • Rift Valley Fever, heartwater

  • Prevention steps as described here can help minimize your risk
