NAT'L GRAIN AND FEED FOUNDATION DONATES $60,000 TO PEDV RESEARCH
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

Another group has committed funding to be used for research of the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv).

The National Grain and Feed Foundation, the research and education arm of the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA), has contributed $60,000 to the National Pork Board (NPB) to support research on several feed-related issues that may be associated with PEDv.

"Given questions about PEDV and feed-related issues, our goal is to find answers as quickly and efficiently as possible," said Paul Sundberg, NPB's vice president of science and technology. "We appreciate NGFF's investment, and will continue to collaborate closely with the NGFA and other industry stakeholders on research to find practical and effective ways for farmers to save their pigs."

"The grain and feed industry is committed to supporting research being undertaken through the NPB that will help find ways to combat the establishment and spread of PEDV in the United States," said David Fairfield, vice president of feed services at the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA).
