The following National Hog Farmer article discusses information presented by Carthage Veterinary Service Ltd., of Carthage, Illinois, a leading veterinary practice dedicated to swine health and production.  It speaks to the need for bio-security vigilance in a number of areas - Feed, Pork, Transportation Equipment, Mortality Management Equipment and Foreign Visitors.  One need look no further than the continuing pernicious spread of the Wuhan/COVID-19 Virus in humans in spite of the current global drastic measures being taken to curtail it to understand how daunting a task bio-security can be.
