US Pork Organizations Share New CFIA Feed Import Requirements

The Swine Health Information Center along with the National Pork Board, National Pork Producers Council, and American Association of Swine Veterinarians are sharing with US producers and industry members the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA’s) new import requirements. The requirements are for unprocessed grains and oilseeds, as well as associated meals, intended for use in livestock feed when sourced from countries reporting an active case of African swine fever (ASF) in domestic or wild pigs within the last five years. CFIA conducted a comparative analysis of livestock feed imports which resulted in these specific ingredients being identified to be the highest risk. The date of implementation for these new requirements was Friday, March 29, 2019. Read the announcement in full here. Additional details were released on April 2, 2019, and can be read here.
