Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has issued a final rule that, effective Nov. 25, will add Liechtenstein and Switzerland to the region of Europe recognized as low risk for classical swine fever. This rule also adds Liechtenstein to the list of regions considered free from swine vesicular disease and the list of regions considered free from foot-and-mouth disease and rinderpest.
