Although more commonly found in horses, there have been a couple of recent cases of Swine Strep found in assembly yards as reported by PennAg Industries:

This serves as a reminder that even in this day of very high bio-security conciousness on farms, there are opportunities for weak points in the industry collective defenses, particularly within the realm of animal transport.


IDEAL Agriculture & Marine offers a full range of livestock and animal mortality products, including business interruption for many diseases.  Whether currently manifested potentially devasting threats such as African Swine Fever and High Pathology Avian Influenza; more remote calamitous diseases such as FMD; or more common but still costly diseases such as PRRS and Salmonella, we can craft cost-eefective solutions for treating the risk.  If you have clients within the animal agriculture sectors, be sure to visit with us for more information.
