The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) is working closely with other federal and state agencies, the swine industry, and producers to help keep African swine fever (ASF) from entering the United States. USDA has developed resources including infographics and videos that can help raise awareness of the disease and the devastating impact ASF could have on the US swine population. Veterinarians, international travelers, and anyone involved with pigs can use these resources to learn more about ASF and how to help keep it out of the United States.
