U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agricultural inspectors have been and are continuing to focus “all hands on deck” to protect U.S. borders from foreign animal diseases (FADs), reports Farm Journal's PORK.

African swine fever (ASF) is slowly making its way closer to the U.S. and with the recent announcement of positive ASF cases in the Dominican Republic (DR), there are a lot of questions and concern in the U.S. now.

John Sagle, deputy executive director with CBP, said they are using all the resources they have to address these concerns and prevent FADs from coming in, during a webinar presented by the National Pork Board and supported by the Pork Checkoff on Aug. 10.
