African Swine Fever (ASF)’s threat to USA farmers has never been more real. With the recent detection of ASF in the Dominican Republic, ASF has been introduced in the Western Hemisphere for the first time in over 40 years.
Join SwineTime Podcast host, Dr. Spencer Wayne, as he visits with Dr. Joel Nerem, PIPESTONE Chief Veterinary Officer, on a timely topic in the industry, ASF.
In Nerem’s opinion, ASF is the most important disease of pigs worldwide. Although precautions are taken to try and stop the spread of ASF into the United States, it is important to be prepared. PIPESTONE recommends you establish a Secure Pork Supply Plan for each farm site location, maintain 30 days of swine movement records for all farm sites and report any suspicious clinical signs or mortality immediately to your veterinarian.
PIPESTONE’s mission is “Helping Farmers Today Create the Farms of Tomorrow.” The SwineTime podcast was created for pig farmers and individual pork producers around the country. Hosted by Dr. Wayne, the podcast contains pork industry news, advancements in animal care and how to enhance your productivity.
