Finishing barn breaks with PED

 A finishing barn in Chatham-Kent has an outbreak of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus.
It’s the 91st case in Ontario.

It comes days after a “town hall” meeting organized by the Ontario Pork marketing board during which veterinarians expressed confidence that the virus can eventually be eradicated from Ontario.

That would improve Ontario’s status with hog importers around the world and will be especially welcome for purebred breeders.
