National Pork Board launches AgView

The National Pork Board launches a new tool to help protect the industry from foreign animal disease fallout.

Chief Veterinarian Dr. Dave Pyburn spoke with RFD-TV News about the main objective of the tool, what makes it stand out compared to other tools, and how it will help in cases of African swine fever.

Dr. Pyburn states, “It’s a software-based technology that will help our industry be able to communicate with responders in a time of a foreign animal disease outbreak, and what they’ll be able to communicate is information about their site, information about the health status of the animals on their site, and the most important will be the movement status, records, from their site... so we can quickly get any foreign animal disease situation under control.”
