Pork Checkoff

Pork Checkoff Research

Research is at the heart of the National Pork Board’s mission and is funded by your Pork Checkoff dollars. Research is administered in all areas of pork production, processing, and human nutrition to develop a higher quality and more profitable product in the competitive meat protein market.

Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Use of animal movement data and epidemiological modeling to identify premises at high risk of infection in the event of a foot-and-mouth disease epidemic
Foot and mouth disease (FMD) is one of the most contagious and economically relevant diseases affecting livestock and is rapidly transmitted between hosts. Fortunately, the US swine industry has...
Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Investigating potential existence of chronic, persistent foot-and-mouth disease virus infection in domestic pigs; implications for disease control strategies
The severe measures routinely enacted for control of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) outbreaks are based upon extreme contagiousness of the disease, rapidity of spread, and fear of residual...
