About the Event
The case of the Philippines
While still in the middle of a pandemic, yet another outbreak emerged in our country earlier this year – the African Swine Fever (ASF). Although the flu cannot be transmitted to humans and other livestock, it has greatly devastated and affected nearly a third of the nation’s 12.8 million pig herd which translates badly to the swine industry. In response, the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) have already taken actions to curb the spread of the flu but pig-owners are still advised to be cautious and vigilant.
DCCP, together with ECCP, invites you to the online conference entitled “What You Need To Know About the African Swine Fever”, as the speakers from BAI and Meat Importers Trade Association, discuss the latest developments and prevention measures against the outbreak and how the ASF affects the swine industry, as a whole.
