AHC News and Updates

Swine network partners hosted a webinar in collaboration with the Canadian Animal Health Surveillance System (CAHSS) division about thoughts and implications about the current Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) outbreak in cattle in the US and potential impacts on the swine sector.

The webinar covered an update on HPAI in dairy cattle in the US, summary on the national collaborative approach amongst government and swine industry, applied biosecurity concepts towards the potential of HPAI in swine, and an overview of the current Canadian grassroots approach for non-HPAI influenza in swine.

This webinar was intended for Canadian swine veterinarians and veterinary staff but was open to veterinary professionals from other areas of practice.

Speakers included Drs. Kurt Preugschas (Canadian Association of Swine Veterinarians), Murray Gillies (CAHSS), Egan Brockhoff (Canadian Pork Council), Christa Arsenault (Canadian Swine Health Intelligence Network), and Judy Hodge (HyLife). Dr Genevieve Toupin, CFIA manager for Ruminant and Swine, was also on hand to answer questions and join the discussion.

This webinar is available in English only. If you would like to further disseminate this video, please reach out to CAHSS at cahss@animalhealthcanada.ca.
