Livestock News: Two PED cases reported in Alberta
According to National Hog Farmer, another farm in Alberta has reported porcine epidemic diarrhea.
Alberta Pork is working closely with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry to fully investigate the outbreak at the 600-head farrow-to-finish hog operation. This is the second-ever reported case of PED in Alberta. The first case was reported in January. Since then, provincial stakeholders have been monitoring the situation to determine a source for that outbreak, but none has been found. At this time, it is uncertain whether the first and second reported cases of PED are linked in any way.
