Dr. Paul Sundberg, National Pork Board, 2015 Pork Academy

The experience of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) has offered us many lessons. We have learned that the logistics of today’s pork production is so large that the likelihood of being able to protect against the entry of another disease is, at best, extremely small. International travel has dramatically increased, and pork producers import a wide variety of inputs onto their farms. This session will share how we can prepare for future production diseases and how the Swine Health Information Center can help with coordinated federal, state and industry responses.
