Who can see your viewing activity?
How do I mute myself? Or are we already muted.

Buenas tardes. Saludos dese Coyhaique - Chile
you are already muted. everyone is in listen only mode. thanks.
Tip for USDA employees - I had some trouble playing back the recordings while teleworking. After working with my USDA IT support, we realized that turning off VPN allows the recording to playback without any issues.
It also works fine if you have a mobile device. I think there is a challenge with the VPN firewall.
d ont know if my computerbut cant see Mr Harts screen

Good afternoon/buenas tartes a todos! Greetings from Virginia. Looking forward to another group of interesting presentations! Thanks Rosemary, Jeff and Beth!
Yes, but not the whole screen. At least part of the bottom is cut off.
I think that may be a quirk with Zoom.
in the top view option tu can change
Good morning from Japan! Yes
What is the rational for allowing the animals already being moved to continue to its destination and will they we monitored at their new destination?
Hello, thank you for joining us today! You can still register for tomorrow's webinar on the APHIS ASF Action Week webpage: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/animal-disease-information/swine-disease-information/african-swine-fever/seminar/asf-action-week
are there plans to allow compartmentalization of germ plasma/seedstock producers that would allow them to continue business in a quarantine zone
What are typical disposal methods?
Thank you, for sharing the human impact and livelihood on farm families. It hits home and incredibly important.
It might be helpful for people to explain the definition of "quarantine". Many will hear quarantine and think that everything is shut down and stopped until the quarantine is 'released'. Farms in the control area will remain in quarantine until the control area is released. Dr. Kaisand referred to quarantine meaning movement only by permit. For some that could be termed as "controlled movement" or "permitted movement". In this case quarantine means stopping movement until a movement permit is issued. It may be helpful to explain so people aren't fixated on quarantine in the control zone meaning absolutely no movement until the quarantine is released??
Will live haul trucks be cleaned, disinfected and inspected before leaving processing plants?
How Iowa state is collaborating with APHIS in case of an outbreak? How are you sharing roles and responsabilités and assuming coordination?
will we restrict delivery drivers, ie UPS, Mail, Amazon to sites?
What type of fan filters have been found to be effective to reduce aerosolized movement of virus internally and externally for air exchange where virus molecules exist?
During ASF will it be expected that states will conduct surveillance sampling in control and restricted zones? If yes, what percentage of farms within each zone? Is this something required to maintain our trade status? A great deal of sampling was done in WI during HPAI during 2015 with little effect towards eliminating the virus, found few to no positives, and requires staff to move from farm to farm, a potential biosecurity risk. As discussed in the presentations, these viruses move via farm staff, contractors, vehicles, etc.
As a US Customs and Border Protection Agriculture Specialist in the Port of Buffalo, NY, I have really gained a lot of knowledge about ASF through this weeks presentations. As a Field Training Agriculture Specialist it has been eye opening as to the seriousness of this disease to me and now I can pass this on to my fellow Specialists. Again to all presenters and USDA i thank you very much for doing this.
Would be a good investment for the US to pay indemmities for the stamping-out strategy in DR? Has been quantified vs paying for an outbreak in the US?
What would be the situations in which pigs would receive a potentially efficacious ASF modified live vaccine during an outbreak? What about movements of vaccinated pigs if the vaccine is not DIVA?
As far as a "food safety" issue - while it cannot infect people, sick/diseased animals cannot be slaughtered for food, so that will eliminate the use of most animals infected with ASF...
Any maritime known ASF pathways to report? or general comments in ASF prevention directed to Southern California Seaport/ CBP= audiences
may want to mention resources the USDA APHIS and AASV posters available on ASF, CSF and FMD
FAD Push Packs - source?
The FAD Push Packs can be ordered from The Pork Store https://porkstore.ceprinter.com/Catalog/?Provider_ID=1212782
If a site breaks with ASF, any estimate on how long before that site is able to restock?
Do you do environmental swab to detect the virus

hallie, did you see my questions about EMRS?
there are so many questions, I haven't gotten to them yet.
Actually, it looks like Dr. Shere is answering a similar questions to yours!
If producers are interested in getting people trained to collect samples, is there a way to get them into specific trainings? Are trainings available yet?
In MN, we allow burial, incineration, composting, rendering. In a disease outbreak, we look mostly at burial (as allowed) composting (whole carcass, grind/compost, and above ground burial.)

Thank you so very much! Wonderful presentation!

Fantastic! Thank you!
see you tomorrow!!
