In this episode, Adam Sharpe discusses the recent outbreak of African Swine Fever in Belgium with IEG Vu meat & livestock analyst Max Green and Animal Pharm Editor Joe Harvey.

Max explores the big questions from a markets perspective, such as why the outbreak is so significant for the pig meat sector in Western Europe, what efforts are being made to contain the spread of the disease, and what the potential impacts are on pork prices and trade.

 Joe then provides an overview from the animal health sector, talking about the efforts the industry is making to tackle ASF, what companies are involved in this particular segment and what can be done to stimulate efforts to develop vaccines.
