AFRICAN SWINE FEVER
confined within the wild boar population and obviously you
don't want it to affect the commercial pig population. But
so far in Belgium, that hasn't been the case - it is still very
much a wild boar issue - unlike in Poland and Romania."

North America responds to ASF threat
North American pig industry stakeholders have been
proactive in taking measures to prevent the trans-continental spread of the disease. Notably, in the United States,
the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) canceled the
exhibition portion of the 2019 World Pork Expo (WPX),
the world's largest pork-specific international trade show,
two months before the event.
"If ASF were to become endemic in the U.S., it would
devastate the U.S. pig population and adversely reshape
the pork and feed industries and negatively impact
rural America," says Joel Newman, president and CEO,
American Feed Industry Association (AFIA).
To the north, the Canadian Minister of Agriculture
and Agri-Food issued an order of conditions for the
import and handling of select plant-based feed ingredients intended for use in livestock feed, from high ASF-risk
countries, including thermal temperature and time parameters for unprocessed grains/oilseeds and meals.  
"Feed importers should be able to provide feed
purchasers with information on how the ingredients were
produced and handled prior to entry into Canada," states
the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

production is set to expand by up to 4% in 2019. "As African
swine fever continues to play out, U.S. pork will keep things
moving in a positive direction. If not, we're going to have a
really hard time finding a home for all the pork that we're
producing - especially at a profitable level."
ASF has also taken its toll on grain markets and futures
trading as the decline in pig production signals sizable
drops in the total global feed production volume. For
example, several sources estimate China's feed production
may decrease by up to 10% - or more than 19 mmt.

ASF impacts trade, feed production

Feed as a disease vector

Brazilian and European pork exports are poised to
offset some of China's pork supply gap. According to
Bloomberg, 40% of Brazilian pork exports have shipped
to Hong Kong in the first two months of 2019.
Despite import opportunities, Rabobank forecasts a 10
million metric ton (mmt) supply gap in the 2019 protein supply.
Even with strained Chinese trade relations, U.S. pork
producers will benefit from shortages.
"We're really in an ASF-or-bust-type environment," says
Will Sawyer, lead economist - animal protein, CoBank's
Knowledge Exchange Division, noting that U.S. pork

A Kansas State University study confirmed that
ASF-contaminated feed could contribute to the spread
of the disease. The report, "Infectious dose of African
swine fever virus when consumed naturally in liquid
or feed," concluded that ASF virus "can easily be
transmitted orally," and that the virus was especially
infectious in liquids.
No clear link has been made between ASF outbreaks
and industrial animal feed production, as they have largely
been attributed to feeding contaminated pork products
and swill, lax biosecurity and swine transport.

Given the nature of the virus and its ability to
survive a variety of conditions, animal feed and
feedstuffs are considered potential disease vectors.
