Pig Virus



Wisconsin's state veterinarian has banned spring weigh-ins for pigs competing at fairs this year and is recommending all pigs shown at fairs be sent immediately to slaughter to prevent the spread of a deadly animal virus.
 
The steps are aimed at preventing the spread of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, which has killed as many as 4 million pigs since it showed up in the United States last April.
 
The La Crosse Tribune reports Wisconsin has seen six cases so far.
