Farm Crisis Operations Planning Tool

A Farm Crisis Operations Planning Tool for emergency events (e.g. natural disasters, disease outbreaks, public health emergencies or market disruptions) that can lead to reduced or suspended access to resources needed to manage and care for pigs is now available. Development of this resource was a cooperative effort led by Sherrie Webb of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians with National Pork Board, National Pork Producers Council, and Swine Health Information Center staff in response to input received from pork producers concerned about disruptions due to COVID-19. This tool highlights key resources and supplies that may be affected during various states of emergency.
