Idaho Issues Order For Swine Entry Due To PEDV

by | Mar 12, 2014 | News | 0 comments

In an attempt to stop the spreading of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus, or PEDv, last week the Idaho State Department of Agriculture issued an administrative order requiring evidence for all swine entering the state to show they are free of the virus. The PEDv is a disease spreading throughout the US which makes adult pigs ill, and can be fatal to suckling pigs. This virus does not pose a food safety concern, and is not transmissible to people, or other animal species. The administrative order for swine entering Idaho is now requiring the Certificate of Veterinary Inspection to accompany the shipment.
