An 82-sow, farrow-to-finish, one-site operation near Rose Creek in southeastern Minnesota has been depopulated after breaking with pseudorabies (PRV) in mid-October, reports Paul Anderson, DVM, Minnesota Board of Animal Health.

Nine sows tested positive, says Anderson. The herd had been vaccinated for PRV.

Minnesota will retain its Stage IV status (surveillance) unless another infected herd is discovered in a six-mile circle test of the herds.

Also, Indiana has just advanced to Stage V, PRV-free status.
