US Swine Health Improvement Plan

“Piloting a proven platform for safeguarding, certifying, and bettering animal health”

ASF-CSF Monitored Certification Program

A project team of swine interest veterinarians from four land grant universities is spearheading a USDA sponsored pilot project entitled, “The Development and Demonstration of a US Swine Health Improvement Plan modelled after the National Poultry Improvement Plan”.

The primary objectives of this endeavor are to develop and implement an African Swine Fever (ASF)-Classical Swine Fever (CSF) Monitored Certification Program modelled after the basic tenets of the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) H5/H7 Avian Influenza Monitored certification of US Commercial Poultry operations. Upon the conclusion of this two-year pilot project (should there be interest), the experiences gained and operations established through the pilot could be transitioned into a more formal and ongoing platform (i.e., US Swine Health Improvement Plan or US SHIP) for safeguarding, certifying, and bettering the health of US swine and longer-term competitiveness of the US pork industry.
