African Swine Fever prevention and control at farm level & feed mill

March 18, 2021
85 minutes

The African Swine Fever [ASF] crisis in China drastically reduced the pig population and, as a result, pig feed production fell by 35% (40 million tons) in 2019.

This meant that many pig businesses in China have collapsed because their pig populations had to be culled once a single case of ASF was discovered on the farm. Business could not resume at the same locations for a long period.

These days, cases of ASF in Europe are increasing.
Therefore, it might be of interest to you how the pig industry in China reacted to safe-guard their business.

We have organized the upcoming Bühler information sessions to provide you with some insights into the measures in China.
