ATTENTION SWINE PRODUCERS

Effective immediately, all swine entering WV need to have the following statement on the ICVI or Health Certificate:

" To the best of my knowledge, swine represented on this certificate have not originated from a premises known to be affected by Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv), and have not been exposed to PEDv within the last 30 days."  

The statement is to be on the HC and signed by the owner as well as the veterinarian

Pigs coming from a PEDv affected herd can come to WV with a PCR negative test for PEDv on the imported pig with the results listed and attached to the ICVI.
