On September 15, Manitoba’s Chief Veterinary Office (CVO) confirmed positive test results for porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) from a southeastern Manitoba sow barn, bringing the number of Manitoba cases to nine since the first one was found in February 2014.
Control measures were implemented immediately and a plan is being developed for restricted site access, barn clean-up and animal care. Producers within a 5-km radius of the infected site or with direct contact to the site are being alerted to monitor their herds and collect samples for testing.
Six of the nine premises in Manitoba previously confirmed to have PED are now determined to be PED Presumptive Negative.
