Podcasts are a perfect way to get caught up with new swine information! We are presenting you the latest episode from “At The Meeting… Honoring Dr. Bob Morrison” in collaboration with SwineCast.

African Swine Fever (ASF) returns to the Caribbean is the focus of this episode. After nearly 50 years, African Swine Fever (ASF) has returned to threaten the Caribbean swine population, including Puerto Rico. What are the risks for producers?
