The pork industry in Manitoba has been dealing with a porcine epidemic diarrhea(PED) outbreak since October, making it the largest, and longest outbreak in the province's history.

Manitoba Pork General Manager Cam Dahl says there have now been 122 cases, and while they have slowed down, and some have transitioned to negative, they are still seeing new cases pop up.

"Producers, the independent producers, the integrated producers, the colonies, are working together with the veterinary community, the processing, the transporters, all parts of the industry." Said Dahl, "We're working together to really look at that question, what has been different about this outbreak, and what do we need to do differently going forward"

This is the first time the province has had a PED outbreak last through the winter.
