Securing Indiana’s Pork Supply

What is the National Secure Pork Supply Plan?
The national Secure Pork Supply (SPS) Continuity of Business Plan is an initiative that provides opportunities for pork producers to voluntarily prepare before a disease outbreak. This will better prepare swine operations that have no evidence of infection to move animals under a movement permit issued by regulatory officials and maintain business continuity during a Foreign Animal Disease (FAD) outbreak. Producers are encouraged to visit www.securepork.org to read more about the National Secure Pork Supply Plan.

How to Participate in Indiana
To integrate the foundational elements of the national Secure Pork Supply plan into Indiana’s disease response framework, the Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH) encourages producer participation in Securing Indiana’s Pork Supply. As part of participation in Securing Indiana’s Pork Supply, the following items must be completed:

  • “Securing Indiana’s Pork Supply” Meeting
  • Premises ID Validation
  • Biosecurity Assessment & Training
  • Certified Sample Collector Training
  • Electronic Movement Permit Training

For more information – download and review the handouts
