Combating the spread of African swine fever (ASF) is a top priority worldwide. In Germany in particular, new outbreaks are worrying the industry. The virus can also be transmitted via feed. How to counteract this is the topic of this week's webinar by Dr. Eckel Animal Nutrition GmbH & Co.KG.

African swine fever virus can be transmitted in a number of ways, including infected animals, equipment, human traffic and swill feeding. In addition, transmission through feed has recently received increased attention as a potential gap in biosecurity measures.

In the webinar "Mind the gap - the role of feed in ASF virus control," attendees will learn the latest on biosecurity measures against ASF, the role feed plays in this, and what can be done about it to close the gap.

The webinar will take place on 7/7 at 8:30 am.
