On Sept. 23-26, 2019, Iowa participated in a USDA functional exercise of a foreign animal disease outbreak. THIS WAS ONLY A FUNCTIONAL EXERCISE AND WAS NOT A REAL EVENT. You can read a summary prepared by IPPA about the event.


September 24, 2018 – IPPA hosted a webinar about the status of ASF in China, actions underway by the pork industry and State of Iowa, and practical on-farm preparedness tips.  Speakers who were part of the webinar are Dr. Patrick Webb, National Pork Board; Dr. Chris Rademacher, Iowa State University Extension; Dr. Liz Wagstrom, National Pork Producers Council; Dr. David Schmitt and Dr. Jeff Kaisand, Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship; and Jamee Eggers, IPPA. The video is approximately 55 minutes long.
