Webinar to Focus on Proposed PRRS/PEDv Rule
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/15/2017

The University of Wisconsin-Extension Swine Team, in conjunction with Wisconsin Pork Association, will be hosting a webinar to review details on a proposed rule that would establish herd testing requirements for Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus in Wisconsin. The online presentation will be held March 23 at 6:30 p.m.

Topics of the webinar include previous actions in Wisconsin to educate producers and youth exhibitors on the diseases, discussions on the national level, and details of the proposed rule. Herd plans for producers to implement on farm, testing protocols, and updates on the impact of PRRS vaccine will also be discussed.

The goal of the proposed rule change is to control and reduce prevalence of PRRS and PEDv, and to prevent spread on positive sites.
