According to Farmscape, Manitoba's Chief Veterinary Officer expects swine barns in the province that have been infected with Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea to be free of the infection within the next couple of months.
Manitoba's first case of PED was identified in February 2014, and since then a total of 5 farms, including 2 sow sites and 3 finisher sites have been infected.
Dr. Megan Bergman, Manitoba's Chief Veterinary Officer, says so far strategies aimed at ridding the farms of the virus have been quite successful. The strategies that have been used to eliminate PED from a farm have been developed through consultation with herd veterinarians and information gathered from PED infected regions.
