South Korea has found African Swine Fever near its border with North Korea, and has culled 4,000 hogs to prevent it from spreading.

The outbreak comes about four months after North Korea reported its first case.

The disease has spread in all directions out of China which has lost about half of its hogs to the disease.

Dr. Paul Sundberg from the Swine Health Information Center in Iowa, will discuss African Swine Fever at the Shakespeare Swine Seminar on Wednesday in Stratford.

The seminar will focus on biosecurity to prevent the spread of a number of diseases.
