According to NPA, four new cases of Swine Dysentery have been confirmed on pig farms in North Yorkshire and Gloucestershire.
Three of the cases have been identified in North Yorkshire, one of which is a finisher unit. The other was on a Gloucestershire finishing unit.
The cases continue the worrying escalation of outbreaks in recent weeks. They have prompted a warning to anyone who has recently moved pigs from North Yorkshire to monitor them closely for the development of any clinical signs of enteric disease.
The exact origin of the outbreaks remains unclear, but is currently under investigation, AHDB said.
Earlier this month, AHDB reported that there had been three outbreaks in three different counties within the north and east regions in the last couple of weeks.
