Abstract

This industry manual provides the reader with a broad overview of U.S. swine production methods and the relationship to procedures that may be established in the event of a swine-susceptible, highly contagious, foreign animal disease (FAD) outbreak. A highly contagious FAD outbreak could severely impact industries with susceptible livestock as well as allied industries and service providers. A quick, effective and well-coordinated response can minimize harm to the swine industry. Wide dissemination of this information is encouraged to establish open communication between regulators and producers with the goal of reducing the probability that animals or their caretakers become infected with a highly contagious FAD.
