National Pork Board Collaborates with Canadian Officials on FAD Preparedness

Tue, 02 Aug 2022 12:54:37 CDT

National Pork Board Collaborates with Canadian Officials on FAD Preparedness NPB's chief veterinarian shared U.S. pork’s strategies to prevent the spread of foreign animal diseases (FADs) with Canadian officials last month.

An FAD outbreak in North America, such as African swine fever (ASF), could stop the movement of animals and animal products across international borders.

At the Pacific Northwest Economic Region Summit in Alberta, Dr. Dustin Oedekoven said U.S. pork producers are proactively developing and adopting tools to help identify and mitigate the spread of an FAD outbreak quickly.


Secure Pork Supply

U.S. Swine Health Improvement Plan

USDA APHIS FAD Preparedness and Response Plan

This collaboration between the U.S. and Canada is a continuing effort that began in 2021 when USDA APHIS and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency developed a protocol to continue bilateral trade in case of an ASF detection in feral swine in either country.

The plan was developed to protect domestic herds in both countries and minimize impacts on the trade of live swine, products and other commodities.

To keep the U.S. and Canada as ASF-free regions, pork producers should continually watch for any signs of the disease in their herd and contact a veterinarian immediately if an outbreak is suspected.

Learn what steps pork producers can take to protect farms and the pork industry from the threat of ASF.
