Feed additives found to stop spread of viral diseases in pigs

Findings may lead to ways to prevent spread of African swine fever

A study conducted by Pipestone Applied Research with a Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) grant tested commercially available animal feed additives to discover whether they could stop the spread of three deadly pig diseases: porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) virus and Seneca Valley A (SVA). The study confirmed that these three diseases can be spread through animal feed.
