Viruses still pose potential threat to industry

The potential threat from global viruses to U.S. agriculture is growing, and that includes the poultry and egg industry, Dr. John Clifford of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service told members attending the USAPEEC Annual Meeting in Lake Tahoe last week.

“The risks are becoming greater,” said Clifford, the chief trade advisor for veterinary services with APHIS’ National Import Export Services staff.

Clifford was among several preeminent speakers who made presentations
during the meeting’s general session.

What's New

USAPEEC does not buy or sell poultry or eggs. However, it does facilitate the process between buyers and sellers, in order to accomplish its stated mission of helping to increase exports of U.S. poultry and egg products in the international marketplace. This section is devoted to helping buyers find sellers of specific products. Here, the buyer can request product information and learn more about available products through poultry and egg buyers guides.
