REGINA - The federal and Saskatchewan governments are spending $200,000 to help keep a virus that kills baby pigs out of the province.
To date there have been no cases of porcine epidemic diarrhea, known as PED, in Saskatchewan.
But confirmed cases of the highly contagious virus have been found in Ontario, Manitoba, Quebec and Prince Edward Island.
The government money is to be used to help pay for a PED strategy for Saskatchewan, including containment and a plan on what to do if it is discovered in the province.
