Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus in Alberta has so far affected only one farm, the initial farm that was confirmed with the virus Jan. 8.
As of Jan. 31, no other cases had been identified in the province and the source of the virus has not been determined. No pigs have left the central-Alberta farrow-to-finish operation since the virus was discovered on the premises.
Alberta Pork said extensive testing has ruled out introduction of PED from other animals and from livestock transport vehicles.
