United States: USDA announces ASF/FMD surveillance pilot project

Pathogen-specific surveillance for ASF/FMD during this 12 month pilot will be based on the collection of whole blood samples (ASF) and oral swabs (FMD) from domestic swine with higher risk of ASF and/or FMD exposure than the average swine.

The main purpose of this pilot surveillance system is to initiate a 12 month test phase to identify potential issues that may arise before implementation of a fully developed swine Foreign Animal Disease (FAD) surveillance system. The overarching goal of this system is to support substantiation of freedom for swine FADs in the United States swine population, including African swine fever (ASF) and foot and mouth disease (FMD).

This plan follows the structure of the existing CSF surveillance system and allows for economies of sampling by using similar sources of surveillance sampling and information. Once completed, the value of this 12 month pilot surveillance option for swine ASF and FMD will be evaluated in comparison with other possible surveillance strategies including a benefit cost analysis.

Pathogen-specific surveillance for ASF/FMD during this 12 month pilot will be based on the collection of whole blood samples (ASF) and oral swabs (FMD) from domestic swine with higher risk of ASF and/or FMD exposure than the average swine.

Sources of samples will include the veterinary diagnostic laboratories, on-farm and slaughter establishment collection streams.
