Farmers to report, track PEDv cases

Pork producers will be now required to report cases of a deadly virus that has spread to Indiana and at least 27 other states, as the USA takes steps to battle the spread of the disease.

The disease, Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv), has been verified in Boone County hog herds, the Indiana State Board of Animal Health said. Through March, the virus has been confirmed in 42 other Indiana counties, the BAH said, causing the loss of tens of thousands of piglets.
