On September 21, 2016, a new case of PED was confirmed at a finisher farm in southeast Manitoba. This farm is within 5 km of the sow farm that was confirmed positive for PED last week. The producer is working with their herd veterinarian and Manitoba’s Chief Veterinary Office (CVO) to biocontain the site and make plans for animal care and site clean-up. All farms within 5 km of the farm have been notified and all are being tested, as well as any farms that have been in contact with the positive farm.
