Producers, Vets Welcome at PEDV Meeting
If you’re a pork producer or veterinarian interested in learning more about the federal government’s role in Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV), you may be interested in an international conference on novel Swine Enteric Coronavirus Diseases (nSECD) in Chicago, Ill., Sept. 23-25, 2014.
The conference, hosted by the USDA, the U.S. Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), the National Pork Board, the National Pork Producers Council, and the American Association of Swine Veterinarians, will include multiple sessions on nSECDs. Topics will include disease pathways, risk factors for introduction, immunology/vaccinology for nSECDs, as well as the identification of other transboundary swine diseases of concern.
To learn more about the free conference and to confirm your attendance, please contact APHIS’ Dr. Randall Levings at Randall.L.Levings@aphis.usda.gov or call (515) 337-7155. For travel-specific questions, please contact Heather Szalmasagi at Heather.L.Szalmasagi@aphis.usda.gov.
