First Canadian Case of PED since June 13 Reported in Ontario

July 22, 2014 Since the last reported case of PED in Ontario on June 13, Canada had been free of new cases for over a month. That changed on July 21 as PED was reported on a farrow-to-finish operation in Perth County in Ontario. That brings the total number of cases in Ontario to 63. The disease continues to spread in the United States as well, with 91 new cases last week. There are now 7,719 confirmed cases in the U.S. involving 30 states. These developments underscore the importance of staying vigilant at all times with biosecurity practices. While PED poses no danger to humans or the food supply, it causes up to 100% mortality in nursing pigs. The virus is spread by the fecal-oral route, with the most common sources of infected feces coming onto a farm being pigs, trucks, boots, clothing, or other things that can physically move it. Make sure all incoming animals are healthy. All trucks and trailers MUST be thoroughly washed, dried and disinfected before they go back on-farm, especia ...

Pig Feed in Alberta Tests Positive on PCR for PED Virus

July 7, 2014

A pig starter feed product in Alberta has tested positive for the PED virus. The test only  detects genetic material from the virus, but does not indicate if the feed could cause PED if pigs ate it. The feed was not sold and did not reach a farm. The entire batch of feed will be destroyed. There are no cases of PED  in pigs in Alberta.

Biosecurity is the most important tool for keeping PED virus out of farms. Biosecurity includes movement of pigs, people and trucks, as well as feed ingredients and rations. Producers are encouraged to work with their veterinarian to develop the best biosecurity protocols that consider all of the potential risks for their herds.

PED virus risk is expected to increase again in the fall with the arrival of cooler weather.
