There is another confirmed P-E-D diagnosis on a hog farm in Ontario -- and it's in Huron County.

The latest case was confirmed last Thursday at a finisher operation.

It's the third confirmed P-E-D diagnosis since July of last year and brings the total in Ontario to 87 since the disease was first found in the province in January of 2014.

The disease can be 100 per cent fatal for nursing piglets.

But P-E-D is not considered a threat to human health or to food safety.


The Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario is holding a meeting tomorrow.

It takes place at 11 AM Wednesday at the Keady Community Centre.

Part of the meeting is dedicated to new property assessments -- and the second half of the meeting is part of the group's policy tour.

Farmers will discuss good soil stewardship.


Canada will sign sign the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact next week.

That word from the federal government, but the Liberals say the procedural step doesn't necessarily mean ratifying the controversial agreement is a done deal.

International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland says it essentially means Canada can keep its spot at the bargaining table with the other 11 countries.

She adds only a majority vote in the House of Commons would bind Canada to the deal.


Keystone Agricultural Producers will hold its 32nd annual meeting on Wednesday and Thursday in Winnipeg.

The agenda includes a panel on succession planning, as well as a presentation called "The Gluten Lie.''
