Disease Monitoring: Observing Pigs

Disease monitoring involves close observation and testing. Producers are encouraged to designate one or more Swine Health Monitors.

The materials below will help Swine Health Monitors find disease early or demonstrate no evidence of infection so a movement permit can be requested in an outbreak. Remember to document all training (visit Forms page).
