NPPC President Elect Concerned About PEDV This Winter

NPPC President Elect Concerned About PEDV This Winter

A report out this week from Virginia Tech researchers have confirmed what Pork officials knew earlier this year. That is PED virus originated in China.  National Pork Producers Council President Elect Howard Hill, an Iowa Veterinarian says the best way for producers to deal with the virus and keep it from spreading is to practice good biosecurity and keep rodents and birds off their farms.

Dr. Hill says there is no vaccine currently on the market to battle PED virus but there are some being tested. He says what really concerns him is with winter on the way that could increase the chances of the virus showing up.

He  says while the earlier outbreaks this year happened in Iowa and Minnesota most of the disease is now showing up in North Carolina.
