After African Swine Fever caused the cancellation of the 2019 World Pork Expo, leaders at the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) have determined U.S. biosecurity measures are now strong enough to host the three-day event in 2020.

While African Swine Fever remains a global threat to animal health and well-being, Jim Monroe, spokesperson for NPPC, shares that increased inspections at ports of entry and use of beagles to sniff out illegal products provides the assurance the group needed to host the 2020 event.

Recent legislation passed by both the U.S. House and Senate could further enhance biosecurity in the U.S. Once signed by President Trump, the U.S. government will add 240 additional inspectors at U.S. land and sea ports.
