African Swine Fever: What You Need to Know
Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Do you know how to guard against African swine fever? African Swine Fever is a deadly pig disease that spreads rapidly and affects domestic and wild swine. While not a threat to human health, the virus could devastate America’s swine, pork industry, and food supply. Whatever pigs mean to you - your livelihood or a pet - we're all in it together. Protect our swine and keep the disease out of the United States.

People can't get this deadly virus, but if a single case was detected in the U.S., it could devastate America's swine population, pork industry, and farming communities. Tune into our virtual event to hear an expert panel explain biosecurity best practices and control measures we must put in place to safeguard our swine.

Because African swine fever can have up to a 100% mortality rate, it will take immediate action from every pork producer, farmer, backyard pig owner and swine veterinarian to guard against this deadly foe. Join us and do your part to protect our pigs. To learn more and sign up go to: www.APHIS.USDA.gov/ProtectOurPigs.
