Do we clearly understand which are the most effective biosecurity measurements to prevent the transmission of ASF between farms when infection pressure increases? What are the major worries of those producers and veterinarians dealing with outbreaks of the disease over short distances?
What is the disease transmission risk that comes with importing raw materials? Many feed ingredients are produced in China.
Are we ready to step forward? And declare a suspicion? Do we know how to proceed? What are protocols that will be put in place and how quickly will they happen?
In a world where feed ingredients are marketed globally, do we know the minimum infectious dose to transmit the ASF virus in feed? And in water?
An easily performed vehicle traffic analysis can dramatically minimize the risk of cross contamination into your swine facility decreasing potential disease challenges.
What is the course of this disease in the field recently? Not always following the textbook description… Global swine professionals with field experience answer this and many other questions.
A group of swine professionals will describe their field experience and perspective gained while fighting against African Swine Fever.
Key considerations for the design of biosecure and practical pig loading chutes that will minimize disease transmission during the animal movement process.
We highlight different options for segregation of clean/dirty zones at the personnel entrance into the farm. This is where biosecurity starts. Keeping it simple and easy to follow increases the likelihood of an effective protocol.
