AUSVETPLAN – New pig industry enterprise manual
AHA has just added a Pig Industry Enterprise Manual to the AUSVETPLAN section of the AHA website. Enterprise manuals provide information and guidance about specific risk enterprises. These enterprises, in this case piggeries, might pose special economic or disease eradiction problems, or are important in the epidemiology or impact of certain diseases.
This manual is aimed at both government officers and pork industry personnel who may be involved in EAD preparedness. For government officers, the manual provides an overview of the pork industry, and the nature and operations of piggeries in Australia (Section 2). Piggery features that are relevant to disease control or eradication are described, and guidelines on managing an EAD on a piggery are provided. For owners or managers of piggeries, the manual provides information on EAD management and the procedures that would be used during an EAD response (Section 3), as well as guidelines for preparing an EAD response plan (Appendix 2).
Publication of this manual follows widespread consultation within the pork industry and with government.
This enterprise manual, and all other AUSVETPLAN manuals, can be found in the AUSVETPLAN section of this site.
