"I have rapidly gained a reputation within Defra as that crazy woman who badgers everyone on ASF"

5th Dec 2019 / By Alistair Driver

In her latest comment article in Pig World, Zoe provides a positive update on Government-industry African swine fever preparations. 

Zoe Davies1"I have rapidly gained a reputation within Defra for being that crazy woman who relentlessly badgers everyone to do more on African swine fever (ASF), but I am really starting to sense a shift in awareness and I know that the people that matter really are taking the threat seriously," Zoe writes.

"I’m not going to take that as my cue to go and seek out my next big crusade, as there is still much to be done, but it does mean that I feel slightly less nervous than I did a few months ago."

She also highlights how Team NPA have been working like Trojans to make sure that we are in the best possible position if we do end up dealing with an outbreak.
