NPPC cancels 2019 World Pork Expo
as precaution
Risk of African swine fever introduction to US herd considered negligible;
decision made out of an abundance of caution

The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC)'s board of
directors has decided to cancel World Pork Expo 2019 out
of an abundance of caution as African swine fever (ASF)
continues to spread in China and other parts of Asia.
World Pork Expo, held each June at the Iowa State
Fairgrounds in Des Moines, hosts approximately 20,000
visitors over three days, including individuals and
exhibitors from ASF-positive regions. African swine fever
affects only pigs and presents no human health or food
safety risks. There is no vaccine to treat the swine disease.

Negligible risk, extreme caution
"While an evaluation by veterinarians and other thirdparty experts concluded negligible risk associated with
holding the event, we have decided to exercise extreme
caution," said David Herring, NPPC president and a
producer from Lillington, North Carolina. "The health of
the U.S. swine herd is paramount; the livelihoods of our
producers depend on it. Prevention is our only defense
against ASF and NPPC will continue to do all it can to
prevent its spread to the United States."
The decision to cancel this year's World Pork Expo
comes after more than 100 U.S pork producers gathered
in Washington to meet with their members of Congress
during NPPC's Legislative Action Conference. To augment
the USDA's efforts to protect the United States from ASF
and other animal diseases, U.S. pork producers are asking
Congress to appropriate funding for 600 new U.S. Customs
and Border Protection agriculture inspectors to further
strengthen our defenses against African swine fever.

"Our farmers are highly export dependent," Herring
said. "An ASF outbreak would immediately close our
export markets at a time when we are already facing serious
trade headwinds. The retaliatory tariffs we currently face
in some of our largest export markets due to trade disputes
are among the factors that prompted a conservative decision regarding World Pork Expo. U.S. pork producers are
already operating in very challenging financial conditions.

Threat at an 'entirely new level'
"The widespread presence of African swine fever
in China's swine herd, the world's largest by far, takes
the threat of this swine disease to an entirely new level.
We ask all producers, travelers and the general public to
recognize the heightened risk since the first outbreak was
reported in China last year and to heed biosecurity protocols in support of U.S. agriculture." ■
