Pork Industry And Vets Develop PEDV Biosecurity Guidelines

Pork Industry And Vets Develop PEDV Biosecurity Guidelines

The National Pork Board, NPPC, and the American Association of Swine Veterinarians have developed new biosecurity guidelines to curb the transmission risk of P-E-D virus.  National Pork Board’s Director of Swine Health Dr. Lisa Becton says by using proper biosecurity when handling or hauling manure, the risk of the virus can be reduced. She says timing is critical as swine farms enter the fall manure application period.

Becton says it’s also important producers communicate with their manure haulers.

She says they’re still learning a lot about the disease which when spread can cause significant losses.

Becton says specific guidelines can be found at the Pork Check off website. (pork.org) (pedv section under resources).
