PEDv Forces Postponement of Oklahoma Pork Congress

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 14:56:53 CST

PEDv Forces Postponement of Oklahoma Pork Congress The Oklahoma Pork Council announced late Friday the 2018 Oklahoma Pork Congress scheduled for this coming Friday, February 23, 2018 has been postponed. A new date will be announced as soon as one can be finalized.


OkPORK Executive Director Roy Lee Lindsey said the Congress was being postponed out of an abundance of caution to protect the herd health of Oklahoma’s hog farmers. “There has been a recent outbreak of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) in Oklahoma,” Lindsey said. “Oklahoma’s hog farmers consider it a priority to protect the health and well-being of their animals. We have elected to postpone Pork Congress until later this year.


“PEDv is a disease that impacts swine,” said Lindsey. “There is no impact to humans and your pork remains safe.”


The Oklahoma Pork Council board of directors will meet int he days ahead to select a new date.
