CARLISLE, Pa. — Pig producers need to be prepared to respond should a disease outbreak happen. The Secure Pork Supply Program (SPS) is a voluntary program that assists pig producers in biosecurity and continuity of business (COB) planning. Getting Started with the Secure Pork Supply Program will walk pig caretakers through the SPS templates and explain how to build a biosecurity plan for their farm and complete the SPS program materials.
The SPS plan is also being utilized as a required first step for pig producers to move pigs if animal movements are stopped during a disease outbreak in Pennsylvania. For pig producers who have never had a written biosecurity plan before, the Secure Pork Supply plan can be daunting. Who should consider attending? Pig producers, Veterinarians working with pig producers, Those wanting to build biosecurity plans for the first time or in small system production setting. Dinner will be provided at no cost to attendees. For Further Information: https://extension.psu.edu/getting-started-with-the-secure-pork-supply-program.
