Feral Swine and Foreign and Emerging Animal Diseases - Dr. Lindsey Holmstrom; Diagnostic Epidemiologist, Center for Foreign Animal and Zoonotic Center, from the 2013 NIAA Merging Values and Technology conference, April 15-17, 2013, Louisville, KY, USA.

Dr. Lindsey Holmstrom explains what feral swine are and what diseases are related to these wild pigs. Dr. Holmstrom details many of the diseases associated with wild boars: African Swine Fever (ASF), Foot and mouth disease (FMD), and Classical Swine Fever (CSF) are just a few. She suggests that understanding potential foreign animal disease spread requires knowledge of wild pig distribution.
