USDA NOW REQUIRING REPORTS OF PEDV HOG DISEASE OUTBREAKS
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

The USDA is now requiring the reporting of PEDv cases.

Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack said the agency is taking the action to further enhance the biosecurity and health of the U.S. swine herd while maintaining movement of pigs in the U.S.

In addition to requiring reporting of the PED virus, USDA will also require tracking movements of pigs, vehicles, and other equipment leaving affected premises. However, Vilsack stressed that movements would still be allowed.

Vilsack also announced that USDA's Farm Loan Programs is working with producers to provide credit options, including restructuring loans. He says it will be similar to how the Farm Service Agency successfully worked with livestock producers affected by the blizzard in South Dakota.
