Description

Charles Sturt University research veterinarian Dr Victoria Brookes, who completed her APL-funded PhD on exotic disease prioritisation and investigation in 2014, has released a study on African swine fever. The review demonstrates there are limited reports of ASF transmission between wild boar and domestic pigs in Europe. The research concludes that compartmentalisation of feral and domestic pig populations could be used to support trade of domestic pigs.
