Risky pigs: Moving weaned pigs during an FMD outbreak – part 1
- Foreign animal diseases like FMD, ASF, and CSF are a threat to the global swine industry.
- The response to a foreign animal disease usually involves the establishment of disease control areas within which there will be movement restrictions put in place in an attempt to stop disease spread between farms.
