African Swine Fever
August 20, 2019
The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) – in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the American Association of Swine Veterinarians, the Swine Health Information Council and the National Pork Board – is committed to reducing the risk to the U.S. swine herd of contracting foreign animal diseases, including African Swine Fever. With ASF spreading through China and present in other parts of Asia and Europe, U.S. border safeguards and producer precautions never have been more critical.
