The price of beef and pork has fallen due to the news of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) being found at several more farms.

With FMD being found in cows and pigs on Monday and Tuesday in Andong, North Gyeongsang, a mass culling of more than 33,000 heads of cloven-hoofed animals is taking place.About 15,000 animals had been disposed of as of yesterday.

Meanwhile, health officials in South Chungcheong are taking preemptive measures to FMD containment by having 20,000 pigs slaughtered there. Health officials in South Chungcheong said a veterinarian visited two hog farms in Boryeong for checkups on Nov. 26, just a day after paying a call at the epicenter farms in Andong.

Another hog farm in the region the vet visited on Nov.20 has been put under migration control. An average price of 110 kilograms (242 pounds) of pork was 294,000 won ($255) as of Tuesday, according to the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation, in North Gyeongsang. The price is a 3.6 percent decrease from 305,000 won on Nov.19.
