PED raging in Manitoba

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus is raging across Manitoba with 88 outbreaks since October.

And officials fear worse may be coming because typically outbreaks decline during the winter and increase with the arrival of spring.

The disease often kills 80 per cent or more of piglets younger than two weeks, but older pigs survive after a bout of sickness.
