PEDv Updates from National Pork Board

Feb. 24, 2014

From Dr. Steve Moeller, Professor, Swine Extension Specialist...

The Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus continues to create issues and much industry discussion. Coming out of an National Pork Board meeting this week, new fact sheets (see attached) discussing biosecurity for tagging and weighing pigs along with exhibitions are available.  A host of additional materials are being offered by going to the website. The rapid spread and devastating losses associated with PEDv have taken a toll on the workers in the barns and of course an economic hit as well.  Doing everything you can within your county to maintain strict biosecurity measures is important. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me or others in Veterinary Preventive Medicine (Dr. Andy Bowman) or ODA (Dr. Tony Forshey) if there are questions.
