In recent times, our industry has been guarding against the potential threat of African swine fever (ASF) and dealing with several outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI).

It is apparent that biosecurity is a constant need, not just a one and done plan. The American Feed Industry Association’s Nutrition Committee is hosting a program on this topic in conjunction with the 2023 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), taking place January 24-26 in Atlanta, Georgia.

"Biosecurity: Preparedness Must Be Perpetual” will highlight the need for continued focus on biosecurity for the animal agriculture industry.

Dr. Cassandra Jones, professor and ASI Teaching Coordinator, specializing in animal feed safety, livestock feed manufacturing and feed ingredient stability at Kansas State University (KSU), will be one of the speakers for the program.

Pedro Urriola, Ph.D., research assistant professor at the University of Minnesota, is also slated to speak.

Topics include:

  • Update on Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in the U.S.
  • African Swine Fever (ASF) Update/Gaps in Feed Safety
  • Preparedness and Latest Response Plans from Federal and State Authorities

This agenda has been approved for 2 ARPAS CEUs.
