Recently, there has been a surge in the interest of non-equilibrium collective quantum models, where particle dispersion and spin are examples of effects taken into account. Here, we derive a kinetic plasma model con- taining fermion exchange effects. Exchange interactions are of great importance in many systems, and have no classical analogy. Our model therefore constitute a possible probe of collective quantum phenomena in new regimes. As an example, we consider the influence of exchange
