PED Reported in Manitoba Sow Barn

31 May 2016

CANADA - On 26 May, Manitoba's Office of the Chief Veterinarian (CVO) received positive test results for Porcine Epidemic Diarrhoea (PED) virus from a Manitoba batch-farrow sow barn.

The CVO has consulted with the producer's private veterinarian and with Manitoba Agriculture's Emergency Operation Centre.

Control measures were implemented immediately, and a plan has been developed for restricted site access, barn clean-up and animal care.

Producers within a 5-km radius of the infected site have been alerted, and are monitoring their herds and collecting samples for testing.
