ISU Extension and Outreach offers workshops across the region to help swine farmers feel secure about knowing what to do in case of a disease outbreak.

By Chris Rademacher–Iowa State University Extension and Outreach

In the event of an African Swine Fever, Foot and Mouth Disease, or Classical Swine Fever outbreak in the United States, state and federal regulatory officials will restrict animal movement to slow or stop the spread of these foreign animal diseases. 

Iowa Pork Industry Center and ISU Extension and Outreach swine specialists are available to help producers understand state and federal responses and learn how to use the Secure Pork Supply (SPS) resources to prepare for a foreign animal disease outbreak.

Workshops:

FAD Prep 101

Find out what to expect during a foreign animal disease outbreak. Learn about the producer preparation resources in the SPS Plan. Topics include, national movement standstill, quarantine and control areas, and how the SPS helps your business continue during an FAD outbreak.

FAD Prep 201

Learn about the resources in the SPS Plan and how to apply them to your individual farm. Topics include, ensuring you have a valid premises ID number, keeping accurate movement records of animals, people, equipment, writing your enhanced biosecurity plan and creating a site map, training caretakers in enhanced biosecurity monitoring for a foreign animal disease on your farm (ASF, FMD, CSF), and knowing who to call.  Bring multiple copies of an aerial map of your site(s), and a list of inputs and outputs that enter and leave your farm in a given month with you to the workshop. 

Workshop dates and locations in Iowa:

Sign up for the email list to receive updates when dates and locations are announced, or email [email protected] to schedule a workshop or individual or small group plan assistance.We also offer individual and small group assistance with developing a Secure Pork Supply plan for your operation.
