The Rapid Access Biosecurity (RAB) app™ standardizes Secure Pork Supply (SPS) biosecurity plans and creates maps to visualize the biosecurity infrastructure of individual farms across multiple states. In each state, the RABapp™ provides the pork producer and Department of Agriculture with rapid access to approved biosecurity plans status to expedite outbreak responses. For more information about SPS Secure Pork Supply please visit the SPS website. At the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine, the Machado Lab is working with pork producers, state veterinary health officials and practitioners to ensure all stakeholders have rapid access to critical, enhanced SPS biosecurity plans. We welcome question via main email address at email@example.com or by phone at (919) 513-0781.

“In Oklahoma, we encourage all swine producers to develop Secure Pork Supply plans specific to their operation regardless of the size or number of hogs they own. To assist producers in developing these enhanced biosecurity plans, Oklahoma utilizes RABapp™, which standardizes the plan to be consistent with participating state SPS planning efforts.” Alicia Gorczyca-Southerland DVM, Assistant State Veterinarian, Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, Animal Industry Division.
