Swine - Health Management and Biosecurity
No cases of African Swine Fever (ASF) have been reported in North America and it does not pose a threat to human health or food safety. ASF is a contagious pig disease that can spread through both direct and indirect contact with infected pigs. We encourage producers to continue to follow strict biosecurity protocols.
