Canada: new funding for swine biosecurity program

This phase aims to prevent the spread of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED) during transport of Saskatchewan hogs.

Friday 21 November 2014 (3 years 2 months 30 days ago)

The federal and provincial governments announced $150,000 in funding for the Saskatchewan Pork Development Board (SaskPork) to deliver a new phase in the Saskatchewan Swine Biosecurity Program.

This phase aims to prevent the spread of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED) during transport of Saskatchewan hogs.

This investment provides funding for truck wash and transport audits performed by certified veterinarians, and provides education on transport biosecurity. As well, producers can access funding for follow-up veterinary visits to assess biosecurity protocols that were implemented during previous phases of the program. Eligible producers will receive up to $700 for truck wash and transport audits, and up to $300 for a follow-up veterinarian visit.

Over $1 million has been committed for PED prevention, surveillance and response through the swine biosecurity programs introduced under Growing Forward 1 in 2012 and under Growing Forward 2 in early 2014.

To date, there have been no confirmed cases of PED in Saskatchewan.
