The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is inviting interested stakeholders to join the agency on September 13-17, 2021 for the launch of ASF Action Week. The week will feature a series of daily webinars aimed at educating stakeholders about African Swine Fever, how it spreads globally, and how USDA/APHIS plans to protect US swine herds. Stakeholders will also learn what biosafety measures they can take now to prevent the introduction of ASF into the US herd. With the detection of ASF in the Dominican Republic, it is even more urgent to adopt and maintain biosafety practices that protect the security and safety of our food supply in Ohio and the US.
Once registered, confirmation emails will be sent with additional details for access to site resources to print, post, and share and stakeholders are encouraged to register for any or all webinars of their interest throughout ASF Action Week.
