Caution urged about spreading PED manure

Hog farmers need to take care about spreading manure from farms that have had an oubreak of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PED), said  Dr. Jette Christensen, manager of the Canada West Swine Health Intelligence Network.

Manitoba has the disease under control now with no new cases reported this year, but the Network cautions that April to June is normally the period when PED cases peak.

Ontario had no cases from Jan. 15 to last week when there was one outbreak in the Waterloo Region.
