PEDV Spread Slowing Down



(NAFB)--An outbreak of the Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus,or PEDV, first identified in the Midwest in May has spread to 18-states, but the National Pork Board reports anecdotal information from the field indicates the spread of the virus is slowing down.

NPB Vice President of Science and Technology Dr. Paul Sundberg says there have been reports where finishing floors that had been infected have been cleaned and disinfected, and pigs that were negative for the disease have come back and stayed negative.

Sundberg says that’s a good thing, and NPB is trying to get the information together to make sure everyone has a similar protocol, or at least similar information, so all vets and producers know how to act to have a successful outcome.
