June 2, 2016 by Manitoba Pork Council
June 2, 2016, Winniepg, Man – On May 26, Manitoba’s Chief Veterinary Office (CVO) received positive test results for PEDv from a Manitoba batch-farrow sow barn.
The CVO has consulted with the producer’s private veterinarian and has activated Manitoba Agriculture’s Emergency Operation Centre. Control measures were implemented immediately, and a plan has been developed for restricted site access, barn clean-up and animal care.
Producers within a five-kilometer radius of the infected site have been alerted, and are monitoring their herds and collecting samples for testing.
