"The country's first case of PED was discovered last week on a farm in southwestern Ontario, and officials say hundreds of piglets between two to five days old have died from the disease.

The virus has also decimated herds in the U.S., and Canadian hog producers have said they worry the same could happen here."

It appears that we will be importing a vaccine from the U.S. to help tackle this outbreak...I hope it can do some good.

sad2.gif Awful news. I can't put much faith in vaccines, some recent data indicates they are not effective at all, and in some cases, may actually spread the disease they were trying to eradicate.

That's similar to the accounts I've been reading as well.

Note that this is not the Swine flu virus and does not affect humans. Russia banned pork import from Europe, don't know if it's the same virus that's found in Canada as well.

MOSCOW, January 31 (RIA Novosti) – Russia has stopped imports of pork from EU countries following an outbreak of African swine fever virus in Lithuania, Prime business news agency reported Thursday.

Quote:There are no official figures for pigs lost to PEDv but up
to 4 million pigs may have died from the virus, according to
industry analyst estimates. Additionally, the virus was
confirmed in Canada last week.
PEDv had spread to a fourth farm in the Canadian province of
Ontario, the provincial government said on Wednesday, despite
the industry efforts to stop it by disinfecting delivery trucks
and clothing used on farms.

I suspect this virus will spread like wildfire here as it did in the U.S. damned.gif
