Poland tightens laws to combat African Swine FeverStaff Writer |
Europe All farms must be surrounded by fences
The Polish Agricultural Ministry has tightened veterinary requirements for pig farms in Podlaskie, Lubelskie and Mazowieckie provinces, in an attempt to prevent African Swine Fever (ASF) from spreading further.
In addition, by December 31, 2017 all farms must be surrounded by fences of no lower than 1.5 metres tall, attached to the ground.
These will have to prevent all animals from outside of the farm penetrating the farm’s premises. ■
