Has there been any news on how many farms and how many pigs have PEDV.
Any news on causes and any hope for a cure.

Thanks,
Gerold.

I've been reading a little about the Zoetis and Harris vaccines. ...and the difference generations of the Harris product, what vets are thinking about them, talked to some people if they would vaccinate if they never have had it, whether birds and dust carry it...and so on. I don't know if I know any more than when I started...:D

I can't believe that all the people I have been talking to around the Midwest "say" they have never had it. Well, except one guy that owns a huge factory farm hog operation...he has it, but I didn't mean to talk to him about pigs, just happened to get to talking about pigs at a baseball game. Most of the people I talk to don't seem worried about it at all??? One guy said if you don't get pedv you'll get something else that's bad raising pigs long enough....lol.
