Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

Abstract

Special Issue: Feed risk.

Abstract

This issue contains 16 topics on the management of parasites, prions and pathogens in the global feed industry; new perspectives for evaluating relative risks of African swine fever virus contamination in global feed ingredient supply chains; interventions to reduce porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus prevalence in feed in a Chinese swine production system; feed or feed transport as a potential route for a porcine epidemic diarrhoea outbreak in a 10,000-sow breeding herd in Mexico; the risk and mitigation of foot-and-mouth disease virus infection of pigs through consumption of contaminated feed; stability of Senecavirus A in animal feed ingredients and infection following consumption of contaminated feed; detection of African swine fever virus in feed dust collected from experimentally inoculated complete feed using quantitative PCR and virus titration assays; sampling and detection of African swine fever virus within a feed manufacturing and swine production system; effect of mixing and feed batch sequencing on the prevalence and distribution of African swine fever virus in swine feed; monoglyceride reduces viability of porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus in feed and prevents disease transmission to post-weaned piglets; analysis of select swine feed ingredients and pork products imported into the United States from African swine fever virus affected countries; assessment of soy-based imports into the United States and associated foreign animal disease status; evidence of viral survival in representative volumes of feed and feed ingredients during long-distance commercial transport across the continental United States; the uncertainty of African swine fever virus contamination in feed ingredients and risk of introduction into the United States; Canada's approach to the risk management of African swine fever in imported plant-based ingredients and feed products and experiences, progress and challenges in feed safety collaborations.
