USAPEEC Annual Meeting hosts High-Level Speakers

The spread of the highly pathogenic avian influenza virus
in the U.S. is this country’s “largest animal health disease
emergency ever…and it’s bad.” So said Dr. John Clifford, USDA’s chief veterinary officer at the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. Speaking at the recent USAPEEC Annual Meeting in Charleston, Clifford’s assessment of the situation was frank and, at times, frightening.

Undersecretary of Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services Michael Scuse praised USAPEEC for its work to increase exports using USDA funding programs. “Exports have increased almost 2 million percent,” he said. “That’s evidence of what a strong public-private partnership can do.”
