WHY:  African swine fever (ASF) is spreading around the globe, have you stopped to consider how a case found in Indiana—or even within the United States—will impact your operation?

Currently, the US Department of Agriculture plans to stop all hog movements nationwide for at least 72 hours with the first diagnosis. To restart movements, producers will likely need to demonstrate high biosecurity standards, traceability of hogs and adequate surveillance—at a minimum. Is your operation ready for that?

The team at the Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH) wants to ensure every Hoosier pork producer is as prepared as possible now—because we all know that a disease event can drastically disrupt our lives without warning.
