Global feed biosecurity aim of port analysis

African swine fever (ASF) presents a threat to the U.S. pork industry, but from a point of entry perspective where are the greatest risks.

Feed ingredients imported into the U.S. from countries with known foreign animal disease risks, such as African swine fever (ASF), present a threat to the U.S. pork industry. But just how great is this risk and where exactly does it originate when it comes to entry into the U.S.?

To answer those questions, Feedstuffs editor Sarah Muirhead catches up with Dr. Scott Dee of Pipestone Veterinary Services for this segment of Feedstuffs in Focus. They discuss a recent analysis of soya-based feed ingredients from ASF-positive countries focused on identifying the most common entry points via our nation’s seaports.

Dee believes that access to current and future information on this topic will enhance the accuracy of risk assessments and drive the continual development of efficacious feed-based mitigation strategies that will ultimately bring the health status of the country of origin into the forefront of philosophies regarding the global trade of feed ingredients.

Take a listen.
