Swine Delta Coronavirus Detected at High Traffic Facility in Alberta

November 28, 2014 During the ongoing surveillance activities being conducted by Alberta Pork in collaboration with the Alberta government, Swine Delta Coronavirus (SDCV) has been detected at a pig-handling facility in Alberta. This environmental sample was not taken from a farm or a sick animal. There are no reported cases of SDCV in pigs in Alberta. Alberta Pork is working closely with Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) and the facility to investigate the situation and keep producers informed. Together, we have been preparing for the possibility of PED and SDCV for months. A plan is in place to reduce the risk of the spread of the disease, investigate and manage the situation. This serves as a reminder that producers should treat all high pig-traffic sites and vehicles as potentially contaminated with the PED virus and/or SDCV. Producers must work closely with their livestock hauler to ensure all trucks are cleaned, disinfected and dried every time before entering a farm. I ...

PED Expected to be Major Factor Influencing Live Hog Prices this Winter

November 18, 2014 (from Farmscape.ca) The director of risk management with h@ms Marketing Services expects the effects of PED to be the biggest factor affecting hog prices over the next six months. Live hog prices have fallen by about 20 percent over the past month from the record prices that resulted earlier this fall due to uncertainty over PED but they remain higher than year ago levels. Tyler Fulton, the director of risk management with h@ms Marketing Services, says hog numbers have declined about five to six percent compared to year ago levels but the much heavier carcass weights have offset the large majority of that. "Overall our pork production is down sharply but we’ve seen a lot of ebbs and flows to the production run and consequently have seen significant prices volatility. We do have a little better information than we did. In general we’ve got a idea as to what the death loss is on animals that will be coming in over the course of the next five months or so, so unt ...

New Case of PED Reported in Ontario

November 14, 2014 A new case of PED was reported yesterday in a farrow to finish farm in Middlesex County, Ontario.  Clinical signs were first observed on Nov. 10 with laboratory confirmation on Nov. 12.  "The most significant risk factor for this farm was pig transport.  The producer and his veterinarian have developed a control and elimination plan for the farm and have notified key service providers." (OSHAB)  This is the first case in Ontario since July 21st. Also, the producer in the last case of PED in the Montérégie region of Quebec on Nov. 5, had multiple buildings with only one barn with clinical signs of diarrhea and vomiting. The pigs were sourced in Ontario.  At present, PED has not been detected on any farms in Alberta. If you have any questions or concerns about your biosecurity, speak to your herd veterinarian or contact Javier Bahamon at the Alberta Pork office at 780-469-8982, or by email at javier.bahamon@albertapork.com.

New Case of PED Reported in Quebec

November 7, 2014

A new case of PED in a relatively isolated (more than 10 km to the nearest commercial pig site) finisher site in the Montérégie region was reported yesterday.  Nine of 12 oral fluid samples were positive and typical clinical signs were evident. 

The trace back activities from the positive loading dock on Nov. 3 identified two positive trailers that led to this production site. 

It is estimated that it took 7 days from shipment to identification of the farm case.  "All stakeholders (transporter, assembly yard, processor and producer) should be commended for their transparency and full cooperation".
