Exotic disease surveillance study extended

An APL surveillance study funded by the Department of Agriculture aims to prove the absence of exotic diseases such as ASF and support trade and market access negotiations. The “Australian livestock industry health studies pilot project” involves the collection of blood samples from healthy pigs at slaughter (only pigs processed at export abattoirs).

Pigs will be sampled has been extended and will occur between 14 October to 30 November 2019. If your pigs are sampled and return a positive (and possibly a false positive) result, this may trigger a state government investigation.
