Elgin has a PED outbreak

A farrow-to-wean operation in Elgin has been infected with Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus.

It is the 78th farm in Ontario to be infected, but only the second this month.

A year ago there were far more outbreaks. Since then farmers, truckers and others who travel among hog farms have apparently heeded calls for improved biosecurity.
