African swine fever
African swine fever is a contagious viral disease of pigs, which is spreading rapidly across the world.
It was recently detected in Papua New Guinea in March 2020.
African swine fever has never been found in Australia. An outbreak would have a serious impact on the pork and agricultural industries.
You can help by never feeding swill to pigs. Swill feeding is illegal.
Swill is food or food scraps containing meat, meat products, eggs or which has had contact with meat products.
