Manitoba Pork producers are once again dealing with a P-E-D outbreak, but compared to two years ago, the numbers are quite low.

Cam Dahl is the General Manager of Manitoba Pork. He says the disease traditionally spikes on a two-year cycle, and so far, the numbers are still pretty low.

Dahl says the twelve cases in the province are all south of the Trans Canada Highway, and while technically it's being considered as an outbreak, there are far fewer cases than the last outbreak.

During the last outbreak two years ago there were over 80 cases, and Dahl says this year's low numbers are a result of all levels of the industry taking proactive bio-security steps to reduce the risk of infection.
