For this goal, the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) and the Pork Checkoff teamed up to make the information more user-friendly to veterinarians and producers.
New Japanese market requirements came into effect on May 29. These market specifications required imported pork products to comply with modified withdrawal periods for certain animal health products.
Japan represents 45% of all US pork exports at a value of US $1.070 billion.
The Pork Checkoff, in collaboration with several animal health companies has offered information on modified withdrawal periods for several affected veterinary products.
