Manitoba has PED case

Manitoba has had its first case of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus in more than a year.

It’s at a sow barn near Blumenort in southeastern Manitoba.

The Manitoba Pork council urged producers, particularly in that area, to be on high alert against potential vectors that might allow the virus entry. 

The last previous case was in July, 2020, at a finisher barn in the Interlake region.

Ontario had an outbreak Oct. 13 in a nursery in Huron County.
