As the disease is spreading inevitably, it is advised that our hog raisers do the following to prevent any untoward entry of the disease into the locality:

  1. Report any new arrival of stocks on your farm, or in your neighbor’s farm.
  2. Buy stocks only from Bureau of Animal Industry-certified ASF-free farm.
  3. Do not feed swill with meat, especially pork, from scraps of restaurants, carinderias, hotels and resorts, and even from your own table food scraps. If swill feeding is unavoided, use only plant-source swill.
  4. Observe biosecurity. Do not allow any farm technician who came from other hog farms and who has not undergone downtime for the past two days prior to the visit to your farm.
  5. Put wheel foot disinfection bath strategically in your farm, and always ensure fresh disinfectants.
  6. Install a good fly and rodent control program in your farm.

Let us do our share not to purchase any live hogs, frozen semen, pork (fresh or frozen), and pork products from the above-mentioned areas. Report any high mortalities of pigs in your area.

ILOCOS NORTE REMAINS FREE OF AFRICAN SWINE FEVER. Let us keep it this way.
