The SHIC-funded Domestic Swine Disease Surveillance Program was founded in 2017 with the goal of monitoring and reporting diagnostic data and trends of endemic diseases in US swine. Starting in September 2023, diagnostic data from the Indiana Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory at Purdue University will be included in the Swine Disease Reporting System. SDRS currently aggregates data from five veterinary diagnostic laboratories, including the Iowa State University VDL, University of Minnesota VDL, Kansas State University VDL, South Dakota State University ADRDL, and Ohio Animal Disease and Diagnostic Laboratory. With the addition of IADDL, the SDRS monthly report represents more than 96% of all swine samples submitted for testing across six VDLs in the US members of the National Animal Health Laboratory Network.

The Indiana Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory at Purdue is a Level 2 laboratory accredited by NAHLN. The project will begin by adding historical data from the lab per the protocol outlined in the SHIC-funded project. The next phase will add ongoing tests’ result data. Indiana ADDL producer and clientele anonymized data will be combined into a uniquely structured statistical database housed at the SDRS.
