Statement Regarding PEDV Feed Research
The American Feed Industry Association strongly supports research that provides accurate information pertaining to porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, a challenge currently facing U.S. swine production. Recently released research (conducted by Pipestone Veterinary Services and South Dakota State University and reported in BMC Veterinary Research), confirms feed can be a carrier of the virus. However, it's important to note that being a carrier of the virus does not mean that feed is the source. The prevalence of the disease on an infected farm can contaminate many items.
