AASV on Pork Producers Resources

The Director of Animal Welfare for the American Association of Swine Veterinarians, Sherrie Webb, speaks with RFD-TV’s own Janet Adkison on what resources are available for producers and vets during this pandemic and market disruptions.

With packing plant closures continuing, hogs are staying on the farm longer than normal. This domino effect puts more stress on farmers when it come to the care of their animals. AASV, the National Pork Board, the National Pork Producers Council, and other groups have partnered together to help come up with resources both farmers and veterinarians can use to in dealing with this crisis.

Webb states, “While we are certainly concerned about the animals, we are equally concerned about the people that are dealing with this crisis, both on the producer side and the veterinarian side. We offer several resources related to human health... we also have several resources for human well being and mental health.”
