Defra issues new bird flu guidance for pig sector

Guidance for pig farmers on how their businesses may affected by bird flu restrictions has been published by Defra, including dealing with situations when pigs might have to be culled.

With the whole of the UK currently being declared a prevention zone, there are a number of biosecurity measures to be observed on holdings where pigs are kept on the same premises as birds.

A full briefing document, prepared by Defra, the Welsh Government, APHA, NPA and the British Pig Association is now available.
