The first domestically-developed triple vaccine for swine is now available for farmers in China’s Heilongjiang province. The announcement was made recently by the Harbin Institute of Veterinary Medicine under the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences.

The live vaccine protects against PEDv, porcine transmissible gastroenteritis and porcine rotavirus (G-type).

According to Smart Agriculture Analytics, the vaccine could boost the country’s domestic pork industry by an estimated US $4.9 billion annually if adopted widely.
