Movement Rules: Swine Moving Within Wisconsin to Any Market Where Any Swine at the Market May be Sold for Purposes Other than Slaughter

Commercial swine moving within Wisconsin to any market where any swine at the market may be sold for purposes other than slaughter require the following:

  • Testing for Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) is required as follows:

    • Negative tests of herd of origin* within 90 days prior to movement – no restrictions on movement.  Documentation of the negative test results must be made available upon request.

    • Positive tests for either PRRS or PEDv of herd of origin* within 90 days prior to movement - the herd will be quarantined until a herd plan is established and approved.  Movement can take place in accordance with the herd plan.

    • If no test for either PRRS or PEDv has been done within 90 days prior to movement, the animals are not allowed to move except to slaughter, to a market at which all swine on the premises on the day of the sale are going directly to slaughter, or terminal fairs/exhibitions/shows.

  • No CVI is required.

*The herd of origin refers to the current herd with the current owner. The current herd of origin will be required to have had a test within 90 days of movement. If the current herd hasn’t had a test before new pigs are added, that herd will need to be tested to be able to move pigs even if the newly added animals came from a herd that was already tested.
