Middlesex hog farm has PED

Another hog farm, the 62nd in Ontario since January, has had an outbreak of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus.

The break was reported on Friday, a day after two outbreaks in Huron County were posted on the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food website on PED.

The ministry does not name the farms involved.

This latest outbreak is in a farrow-to-finish operation and is the fourth outbreak in June after there were none in May.
