Safe breeding for disease prevention and control


That is one of the goals of the 2021 African swine fever (ASF) prevention and control plan issued by the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development on June 10. Talking about this plan, Mr. Le Thang – Director of the Provincial Sub-Department of Livestock and Veterinary Medicine said:

– Currently, ASF has reappeared in a number of small livestock establishments in the province. From 5-5 to 11-6, the disease occurred in 11 households, 7 villages and groups of communes and wards: Suoi Tan (Cam Lam district), Cam Phuoc Dong (Cam Ranh city), Phuoc Dong, Vinh Hai (Nha Trang City). The number of dead and diseased pigs forced to destroy 236 pigs with a weight of 10,463kg. It is expected that the disease tends to arise and spread quickly in the near future. – To control ASF, from now until the end of the year, what solutions will the industry have, sir? – ASF is a contagious disease, so proactive monitoring, early detection, warning, timely and effective application of epidemic prevention and control measures is the most important solution. Along with that, the process of analyzing the epidemiological situation shows that pig farms and facilities with good biosecurity and veterinary hygiene conditions will minimize the possibility of infectious diseases. Therefore, the ASF prevention and control plan in 2021 sets out the goal of successfully building at least 4 disease-free pig breeding facilities, meeting the supply of breeders for breeders. The plan also sets a target that 90% of large-scale farm breeding establishments, 50% of medium-sized farm breeding establishments and 30% of small-scale farm breeding establishments will apply pig husbandry measures. biological safety. – To achieve the above goal, what are the requirements and tasks of the plan, sir? – For biosafety pig production, farmers shall declare, update and declare livestock activities with local authorities; strict application of biosecurity measures and good husbandry practices. At the same time, the use of animal feed must have a clear origin and meet the prescribed standards; Limit the use of leftovers and recycled food from restaurants, hotels, and industrial parks. The organization of rearing the herd applies only to pig production facilities that have not been affected by ASF or where the disease is present but 21 days have passed. For localities that have not announced all ASF, they can only be raised at concentrated establishments that have been certified for disease safety, biosecurity or certified by local authorities and veterinary agencies to meet all requirements. disease safety requirements to re-herd and increase herd. Together with breeders, local authorities and veterinary agencies will closely monitor the disease, promptly detect and handle outbreaks as soon as they arise, to avoid spreading. In particular, the timely and proactive declaration of farmers when the pig herd shows signs of disease and the proactive monitoring of the veterinary agency will be implemented in parallel. The plan has specifically calculated the process of culling pigs infected or suspected of being infected; the control of transportation and trade of pigs and pig products; management of pig slaughter and the consumption of pork products; cleaning, decontamination and disinfection of the livestock environment when there is no epidemic and at the points where the epidemic occurs… – Can you tell me the financial mechanism to implement this plan? – According to current regulations, for pig raising establishments, cooperative groups and cooperatives, the State will partially support, farmers partly; and livestock production enterprises and households in joint ventures and production linkages with enterprises in the province to self-finance funds to organize the implementation of ASF prevention and control measures. In 2021, the provincial budget to implement the ASF prevention plan is nearly 3 billion VND, the district budget is more than 1.1 billion VND. Funding from the state budget is mainly used to purchase and organize spraying of chemicals to clean and disinfect the breeding environment; sampling surveillance, ASF diagnosis; propaganda and training on ASF prevention and control… – Thank you Sir!
