Canada pledges $76m to combat swine disease

Canada is to contribute $76m over four years to help the pig sector combat disease and enhance industry prosperity, Canada's secretary of state for agriculture Christian Paradis has announced. The government says that incidences of porcine circovirus associated diseases are increasing across the country and are having a severe effect on the pig industry. The funding will be used for research, herd inoculation, bio-security, and long-term risk management programs. The government will work with veterinarians and the Canadian Pork Council to develop programs in these areas.
