In the event of an African Swine Fever (ASF), Foot and Mouth
Disease (FMD), or Classical Swine Fever (CSF) outbreak in
the United States, state and federal regulatory officials will
restrict animal movement to slow or stop the spread of these
foreign animal diseases (FADs). If your animals are located in
a disease control area, you will need to meet certain criteria
(for example: movement records and biosecurity measures
in place) in order to request a permit to move your animals.
Guidance for requesting movement permits can be found in
the Secure Pork Supply (SPS) Plan.

Iowa State University Swine Extension wants to help producers
understand what the state and federal response might include
and how the resources in the SPS Plan can help producers
prepare for a foreign animal disease outbreak. If we can help
individual producers prepare, the industry as a whole is more
