Last week, the Federal Agency of Belgium for the Safety in the Food Chain (AFSCA) published a document that describes the procedure that must be followed by the pig farms located in the area defined as infected with African swine fever (ASF) ad that wish to transport their pigs to an abattoir.

To transport pigs to an abattoir, the operator must request, in writing or through an email, a slaughtering authorisation given by the local control unit. The authorisation shall be subject to a health control with a favourable result performed by the operational veterinarian up to 24 hours before the pigs are transported to the abattoir.

The transport shall be direct, without stops (1-1 transport). The pigs shall be the last ones to be slaughtered (late evening). The means of transportation and the equipment used shall be cleaned and disinfected thoroughly before any new transport.
