  • Dr. Dusty Oedekoven (Chief Veterinarian, National Pork Board) toured the European Union and surrounding countries to learn more about how African Swine Fever (ASF) is managed.
  • Key takeaway: The EU has zone standardization language and practices in place for regions with ASF. This standard helps provide bio-containment, bio-exclusion, and supports business continuity for pork operations, with some regions able to ship pork products after zone practices have been implemented during an ASF outbreak.
