Case Study: Is It Time for an NPIP like Program for the US Pork Industry?

Aug 28, 2019

A study was commissioned in 2018 with the aim of seeking a more in-depth understanding of the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) and assessing the potential for an NPIP like program to support the US pork industry (i.e., US Swine Health Improvement Plan). Findings suggest the basic tenets and approach used by the NPIP could serve as a road map for pork producers and packers (slaughter facilities) interested in more directly and systematically addressing the major swine health issues of high consequence and better positioning the future of the US pork industry in the domestic and global marketplace. Case study report informational materials and request for feedback available online.
