Foreign animal disease preparedness

 Since August 2018,  African Swine Fever has been confirmed in every province in China.  The outbreak of ASF in China has heightened awareness of foreign animal disease risk for the U.S. swine industry. The Iowa Pork Industry Center has assistance available to help U.S. producers prepare for and protect their farms from a foreign animal disease outbreak via the Secure Pork Supply plan.
