Poland tightens laws to combat African Swine Fever
The new regulations were announced on 19 July – in detail they are aimed at introducing new disinfection rules at pig farms and obliging farmers to keep pigs separately from all other animals, a press release said.
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. ■
