Producers and veterinarians can learn from animal health experts the latest developments regarding viruses that are killing piglets and disrupting the swine industry during seven meetings held across Pennsylvania.
Penn Vet’s New Bolton Swine Group and veterinarians with the Pennsylvania Department of Animal Health and Diagnostic Services will lead the meetings that discuss Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv) and other new coronaviruses.
