African Swine Fever (ASF) is blazing a devastating trail throughout China and Europe. Herds and business are being destroyed in record numbers. That’s why the U.S. swine industry is stepping up its biosecurity practices to prevent all foreign diseases, including and especially ASF from invading our valuable herds.
During the webinar Dr. Jean Paul Cano and Dr. Andrea Pitkin offer keen insight in the transmission dynamics of ASF and what practical preparedness and risk management programs U.S. pig farmers can use to protect their herds and their businesses.
Additionally, the webinar covers a variety of other informative topics, including:
- How transportation of contaminated livestock, feed and other goods play a role
- The effect diseased wild pigs can have on domesticated swine herds
- How common farm pests, such as rodents and insects, can spread disease
- The best farm-level cleaning and disinfecting practices
Stop the destruction of the swine industry by viewing this free webinar. It’s a must for everyone in the swine industry.
