The Office of Manitoba’s Chief Veterinary Officer (CVO) has confirmed the province’s second on-farm case of porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) virus in a finisher barn in southeast Manitoba.

The CVO will identify other premises that have been in contact with this farm and investigate how the virus arrived on the farm premises. This case was identified by a CVO investigation related to a previously reported positive sample from a high-traffic site.

To date, eight high-traffic or environmental sites have tested positive for PED including two cases where it is likely pigs contracted PED at high-traffic sites and not on-farm. High-traffic sites move or handle large numbers of pigs and include livestock assembly yards, federal and provincial abattoirs, truck-wash stations and livestock trailers. As of today, a total of 1,187 samples were submitted for PED testing from 18 high-traffic sites.

There are now 62 farm premises that have tested positive for PED across Canada including two in Manitoba, one in Prince Edward Island, one in Quebec and 58 in Ontario. Manitoba remains in regular contact with chief veterinary officers and industry stakeholders across the country on this issue.
