Swine Movement

Effective March 27, 2018, testing for Swine Enteric Coronavirus Disease (SECD) will only refer to Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv) testing. Porcine Delta Coronavirus (PDCoV) is no longer required to satisfy the SECD testing segment of the swine movement rule.

*Herd testing for PEDv and Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) continues to be required prior to swine movement.

Swine Enteric Coronavirus Disease (SECD): means Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv)

Herd of Origin: Means the herd in which the pigs currently reside. When pigs are purchased from a herd, the herd from which they originate is the herd of origin for the seller. Once the purchased pigs are added into the buyer's herd (even if the buyer's herd only consists of one or just a few animals), the buyer's herd becomes the new herd of origin and that herd must meet testing requirements to move pigs again.

Reminder: You cannot sell, move, or dispose of any animal tested for a reportable disease (refer to Appendix A and Appendix B) until the results of the test are known.​

Moving Swine Within Wisconsin

Exporting Swine Out of Wisconsin

Wisconsin does not have specific export requirements for swine. Please contact the state or nation of destination to learn the import requirements.

As states work to curb the spread of disease, animal movement rules can change rapidly. We encourage you to contact the state of destination before every shipment.
