4-30-14 pig virus

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin's state veterinarian has been asked to help in the fight against a virus that has killed millions of pigs in the past year. Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea causes severe diarrhea in newborn piglets, who die of dehydration. The virus is believed to have come from China and showed up in the U.S. last May. Wisconsin state veterinarian, Dr. Paul McGraw will help develop a program requiring farms to report outbreaks of PED and participate in a program to help control the disease.
