The Scottish pig industry and Quality Meat Scotland are taking action to promote high health status in the national pig herd and avoid thousands of pounds of losses through disease introduction.

A group of advisers to the Scottish pig industry including Jamie Robertson (LMS), David Strachan (Wholesome Pigs), Jill Thomson (SAC), Grace Webster (Meadows Veterinary Centre) and Allan Ward (QMS) have developed the health declaration form which requires the source herd of any imported animals to sign a statement of the health status of their herd to specific diseases, based on herd and abattoir inspections, and laboratory testing.

The recommendation will be that this form is provided with every transaction involving the movement of genetic material into Scotland, either in the form of live pigs – such as replacement gilts or weaners – or the semen trade for AI.
