procedures. To assist with the introduction, they collaborated
with local experts to talk about the need for biosecurity.
"We included the Indiana Board of Animal Health, a
veterinarian and a producer to present information to our staff,
get them engaged and help them understand the impacts that
a foreign animal disease would have on our country," Ringger
said. "A well-written protocol doesn't mean much if it's not
followed by all team members. We can't get that accomplished
if we don't have everyone on board."
Trouw Nutrition had already implemented measures
such as lines of separation and dedicated clothing - even
laundry rooms - for mill workers when ASF hit China.
But they, too, took additional precautions when the news
hit, primarily by auditing the biosecurity practices of their
international suppliers.
Viruses like ASF do not exist at the manufacturing site
unless brought there, van den Heuvel said. But just giving
distributors a checklist of precautions to take doesn't
ensure they're followed effectively. So, they sent auditors
and established monitoring programs to check not only
whether ingredient suppliers have biosecurity measures in
place but if they understand why and how they work.

Light at the end of the tunnel
While these measures may seem temporary or diseasespecific, van den Heuvel believes they're here to stay for
the long term -years, if not decades.
Van den Heuvel said he felt confident that Trouw
Nutrition can keep ASF at bay. However, until a vaccine
or another means of controlling the virus is developed,
preventing it from gaining new ground will require
constant vigilance. The greatest threat, he said, may be
the potential for the industry to grow accustomed to the
virus' presence.
"It needs constant attention and people need to be
constantly brought up to awareness," van den Heuvel said,
"because otherwise, it gets sloppy."

Komal agreed, saying that perhaps the most important preventative measure of all is to maintain ASF
as a topic of conversation. "Every day, I wake up and
say: 'good, we still don't have ASF,'" he said. "Having
said that, I continue to say it's imminent. I would be
breathing sigh of relief if a few countries were able to
say we've been able to eradicate the disease, but... there
is no end in sight. As long as the virus continues to
spread, we have imminent danger of it coming here."
Yet even if the virus were contained, Ringger said he
believes the industry's heightened biosecurity is here to
stay. More people travel, more business is conducted internationally and the awareness that a new viral threat could
appear at any moment looms.
"It's a changing world, and this is something that is very
important," Ringger said. "At the end of the day, if we don't
protect ourselves, if we don't protect our customers, we could
face many challenges within the agricultural industry." ■
