Hello there, 

In a globalized world, trading animal genetics across borders is common and beneficial for economic growth and the development of animal breeds within the swine industry. Understanding the intricacies of livestock import and export is now more valuable than ever. To discuss this matter, I had a great conversation with Tony Clayton, who shared insights about his journey of over 32 years in the field, exporting breeding swine, beef cattle, dairy cattle, horses, hogs, sheep, and goats to over 65 countries.



What you’ll learn:


1.  Methods of transport in the swine industry


2. Annual pig shipments


3. Discussion on the quarantine process


4. Negotiating health protocols


5. Import and export regulations
