Virus outbreak in Australian pigs a warning for U.S. herds

A leading swine health specialist says U.S. producers need to keep an eye on a growing virus outbreak in Australia.

Swine Health Information Center Executive Director Dr. Paul Sundberg tells Brownfield three to 10 percent of Australia’s hog herd has been lost to Japanese Encephalitis Virus this year.

“That’s about the magnitude that we had in 2013 and 2014 when we had the outbreak of PED; that was significant here,” Sundberg said.
