Pig farmers in Vietnam told to raise other livestock

November 8, 2019

The Department of Livestock Production has advised farmers not re-stock but to raise other livestock instead. This is because of high reinfection in farms with no successful case of re-stocking in ASF affected areas. Furthermore, ASF is still spreading. “It will take the pig industry at least five more years to restore production in ASF-infected areas,” Dong Nai Livestock Production Association Chairman Nguyen Tri Cong told Asian Agribiz.
