Bloody Chinese whispers. FMD ruled out; suspected Swine Vesicular Disease.

The symptoms of FMD and SVD are so alike they treat as worst case scenario until FMD is ruled out. Whilst is a sigh of relief for the wider farming community it is still not good for the pig industry if SVD is proven. Yes, it is shocking that companies are jumping on the band wagon but the majority of people with livestock have a very poor approach to bio security.
