US SHIP Official State Agencies (US SHIP OSAs):

Patterned after NPIP, US SHIP is national in scope, but administered state by state. Each state participating in US SHIP is responsible for maintaining a US SHIP Official State Agency. US SHIP OSA’s are the entity responsible for administering US SHIP to meet the needs of the industry participants (production sites and slaughter facilities) located in their state. US SHIP OSA’s are responsible for enrolling, certifying, and maintaining the status of the US SHIP participants in their state. Participant inquiries and questions concerning getting started with US SHIP are best directed to the appropriate US SHIP OSA.

US SHIP Program Administration:

Program development of US SHIP is being spearheaded by a team of swine interest colleagues from Iowa State University, South Dakota State University, University of Illinois, and University of Minnesota working in partnership with a number of State Animal Health Officials and USDA Veterinary Services Veterinary Staff, and with advisement from an industry centered Advisory Board.
