Suzette dePersio
51:14
Can peccary (javelina) contract ASF? Symptomatic or asymptomatic? Could they spread ASF? My small amount of research leads to 'no', but I'd love to have more information on this at some point thank you!!
Suzette dePersio
52:12
Hello Dr. Justice-Allen! You might be the perfect person to answer my question 😃
Josh Spencer
52:46
Laura a very important question that I know folks around the world need clarification on — is a Razorback a feral or domestic/production pig? 😊😊 And greetings from NC —
Laura Rothfeldt
56:21
@Josh, as a non-native Arkansan I do not feel qualified to answer that question 🤣 As a representative on our feral hog eradication task force, I'm afraid they will be wanting to change their mascot soon though!
Anne Justice-Allen
56:47
Suzette, my information also says they are not susceptible, I'm not sure if this was researched at PIADL Tom Gidlewski would probably know

PigBrig is an excellent feral hog trap

Thank you!
Josh Spencer
01:02:13
With — it seems by the samples that havebeen collected — quite substantial presence of PRV and SB In feral swine populations, have there been any documented cases of transmission to confined or unconfined domestic production herds? Thanks so much for your thoughts —

Will a transcript of this presentation be available to download for future reference?
Hallie Zimmers
01:13:12
We are making the recordings available on our website and that will be the primary resource: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/animal-disease-information/swine-disease-information/african-swine-fever/seminar/asf-action-week
Heather Bessoff
01:13:27
Thanks for this informative week concerning ASF. Since this is very applicable to the practice of livestock veterinary medicine, are continuing education credits available to participating veterinarians?
Hallie Zimmers
01:15:11
Thanks for your question. We are not providing CE credit for these webinars. They are intended to be informational for a wide range of stakeholders so they aren't targeted toward veterinarians.
Christine Velez
01:17:18
Do radio tracking devices for wild animals have to be external? Does such a device exist that could be injected subcutaneously?
Linda Benjamin
01:18:28
Do the zones around the infected animals have a physical border? Fence?
Anne Justice-Allen
01:18:47
There are units that can be implanted, however range and battery life tend to be limited and surgical complication rates tend to be significant (rejection, infection, migration).
Karla Moreno Torres
01:20:18
To host: where can I find the ASF video recordings of this week?
Gay Miller
01:20:25
Are there any MR differences for feral US swine vs domestic swine?
Terezie Stanberry
01:21:02
Could ICARUS chips be used?
Richard French
01:22:16
I've not seen anything relative to tick vectors. Those known in USA, where and plans. Note: Ticks are a biological vector of ASFV and the virus can survive vertical transmission in tick populations in the absence of pigs. (Feral swine - ticks and Sylvatic cycle?

01:27:27
With — it seems by the results of samplescollected — quite substantial presence of PRV and SB In feral swine populations, have there been any documented or reasonably certain circumstantial cases of transmission to confined or unconfined domestic production pigs? Thanks so much for your thoughts —
Joanna Davis
01:31:00
Josh-for what it's worth, when i was a field VMO with APHIS in Georgia, we had LOTS (not scientific, i know :D ) of spillover into what we called "transitional" swine. Those were domestic breeds that were raised at least partially outside with exposure to feral swine. Several even ended up adding feral to their own herds after they made them quasi-tame with food. It was disturbing but almost as soon as we would get one herd depopulated for PRV and or SB, another herd would be positive. then more tracing, testing and depop then the cycle began again. and a few documented cases of human SB through Ga Dept of Public Health
David Weinand
01:31:01
What are Judas pigs mentioned in a previous slide?
Falyn Owens
01:32:51
Judas pigs are tagged with transmitters and re-released so that the rest of the pigs can be found when the "Judas pig" seeks out and rejoins its social group.
David Weinand
01:33:05
thank you
Josh Spencer
01:33:48
Certainly — number of feral swine individuals removed/eradicated from an area can be recorded and tracked, and that is absolutely important information to compile. But w/out precise FS population “benchmarks” is there a way to know whether the control efforts are actually having an affect on overall population levels? Or is the overall consensus of thought that any feral swine removed is one less that’s out in the landscape can cause damage or be a disease vector? Just wondering how effectiveness of eradication programs is “measured” or modeled. Thank you so much for any thoughts —
Lisa Martin
01:33:50
Are the methods to cull or depopulate feral swine performed in accordance with AVMA panel on Euthanasia? Is I performed humanely?
Joanna Davis
01:34:43
yes
Edgardo Arza
01:36:09
There have been few documented evidence of feral swine infecting small confined domestic production pigs (I personally had that experience in the State of Georgia).

excellent presentation Dr. Length. congratulations

Hi, everyone. Jorge Nina from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Great presentation.

Gracias mi amigo

01:42:02
judas-pig is hunter slang and maybe terminology we want to avoid in science.....
Ricardo Gaitan
01:45:22
sorry. the automatic corrector changed the last name and didn't realized. Dr. Juli Lenoch.

Razorback is an Americanism: it means feral hog.
Justin Dickey
01:49:01
@ Richard French. Judas animals were used long ago in the meatpacking industry to lead livestock through a slaughterhouse to the kill floor. The term is not uncommon in the livestock industry.
Laura Patterson
01:50:37
Thank you! Great presentation.
Richard French
01:56:36
True but still "slang" language
Roy Leslie

I forgot y’all were on Eastern time, so I missed the body of the webinar. Here in Texas, we are just beginning to see a free range population of African warthogs. Another exotic we must now deal with. Is there any data on their susceptibility to swine flu? We’ve got feral pigs in all 264 Texas counties, and wild, released African warthogs in about 10.
Roy Leslie

Looks like there is no time to answer my warthog question. Here’s my email and phone #Roy Leslieroyfiii@yahoo.com210-508-8600

Is there CE credit available for these seminars?
Laura Earle

Thank you so much! I’m a veterinarian, and I found this extremely helpful.
