Dakotas Take Precautions For Pig Virus, Fair Shows

March 25, 2014, 1:31 PM

PIERRE, SD -

The rapid spread of a swine virus is forcing officials in the Dakotas to take extra precautions for pig shows at county and state fairs.

The Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus spreads through pig manure. It's not harmful to humans but is often deadly to piglets.

South Dakota 4-H weigh-in competitions that bring swine together will be cancelled for the season. Student exhibitors will be able to forego their county fair and go to the state fair to avoid swine comingling.

North Dakota's pork producer trade group earlier lobbied for the suspension of the show pig season. North Dakota will move forward, providing safety recommendations for show attendees.

The virus has been in the country for less than a year and already has a reported effect on the cost of pork.
