Officials say they’re conducting nationwide African Swine Fever (ASF) tests on the hog herd in Taiwan after a deceased animal that tested positive for the disease was discovered there over the weekend. As ASF sees a resurgence in neighboring China as it did in 2018 and 2019, Taiwan is implementing stronger safeguards to prevent its spread into its own hog farms. Those measures include pre- and post-mortem inspections of animals at slaughter, as well as stepped-up coast guard patrols to monitor for potentially positive animal carcasses in coastal and border waterways. African Swine Fever has the potential to cause massive disruptions to the Asian pork marketplace like it did 2 and 3 years ago, and beyond the animal health concerns, the disease could mean massive changes in the global pork and feed grain markets.
