PED or Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus is expected to cause devastation for U.S. pork producers and has already caused damage. That’s according to National Pork Producer Council’s Chief Veterinarian Dr. Liz Wagstrom.
PED hits mostly younger pigs and Wagstrom says they’re continuing to see it spread across the country.
Wagstrom says because there is no vaccine, producers need to be extra careful with Bio Security, have the right protocols in place. She says PED is a pig only disease, it doesn’t affect other animals or infect humans. Wagstrom says pork is SAFE to EAT..
