New Case of PED reported in Manitoba

September 22, 2014 The first new case of PED in Canada since July 23 was reported today on a farm in southeast Manitoba. The date of confirmation was Sept. 19. This is the third farm in Manitoba that has been infected with PEDv. Two other cases occurred in pigs at high traffic sites. The pigs were infected at the site and source farms remained free of PED. Combined with the continuing spread of PED in the United States, which reported 68 new cases last week for a total of 8386 cases in 31 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 ...

PED on the Agenda at 2014 Red Deer Swine Technology Workshop

September 16, 2014 The 16th Annual Red Deer Swine Technology Workshop (RDSTW) is just over a month away and Alberta Pork is proud to once again be a major sponsor. The workshop's objective was, and still is, to communicate information on practical pig production, primarily to producers, managers and people working in the barn, with the aim of improving productivity and reducing costs.  As such, it has a unique position in the pork industry calendar and is clearly differentiated from the Banff Pork Seminar, the Alberta Pork Congress and other events. As with previous workshops, the education program is accompanied by a trade show.  Throughout the workshop, time will be made available for interaction with the trade show booths and exhibitors will have the opportunity to introduce their company and products to the delegates. The agenda is full of practical information that can make a real and immediate impact on farm. Click here to register or for more information. Agenda Alb ...

Alberta Pork Releases New Biosecurity Risk Assessment to Assist Alberta Producers

September 3, 2014 As part of our ongoing commitment to biosecurity and maintaining a high health status for our Alberta herd, Alberta Pork has created a new Biosecurity Risk Assessment for use with your herd health veterinarian. This new assessment has been developed from the old Canadian Swine Health Board Risk Assessment with feedback from several of our key industry veterinarians.  Changes to the assessment include more in-depth questions on protocols as well as the assignment of a risk level to focus attention and action on your farm’s highest risk areas. To help you get the greatest possible benefit from this assessment by completing it with the assistance of your veterinarian, Alberta Pork is rolling out Year One of its Producer Biosecurity Audit Program on September 1, 2014. Under this program, Alberta Pork will reimburse all producers to a maximum of $500.00 per premises/PID for completion of the assessment with their heard health veterinarian. To be eligible for reimburs ...
