NEWS!   HEADS UP IN THE SWINE WORLD!

PEDv has once again made an appearance in Oregon.  There has been a confirmed case in Clackamas County.  Please click on the attached links to read the statement from our State Veterinarian and OSU faculty regarding this matter.  The National Pork Board also has a very good resource giving information about this disease and ways to increase your biosecurity.  It is VERY important to be aware of how this disease is transmitted so you can help reduce the possible spread of this disease and protect the newly farrowed pigs in our area.
