TAHC issues African swine fever animal health alert

In July, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) confirmed African swine fever (ASF) was found in samples collected from pigs in the Dominican Republic.

Just a hop from the Dominican Republic to Cuba, a skip from Cuba to Florida and ASF could jump into the U.S. pork supply chain—with no vaccine or cure in sight.

But USDA and the Department of Homeland Security are committed to working closely together to protect U.S. swine from ASF. And the Texas Animal Health Commission (TAHC) is committed to protecting the health and marketability of Texas swine, too.
