PEDv, Staying Prepared For The Next One

PEDV - Lessons Learned in Preparation for the Next Event What Can We Learn? Paul Sundberg, DVM, PhD, Vice President, National Pork Board, suggests that there have been lessons learned but there are most likely more to learn. Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus in the US continues to be the focus of the pork industry and there are still operations getting infected. Dr. Sundberg shares key points: sharing data and analysis is key; producers are accepting that data sharing is part of the solution; and you can't be comfortable or complacent.
