There are four main factors to consider in limiting the risk of infection(ASF) :
Isolation | KEEP A SAME PIG POPULATION ISOLATED :
- They are used to live with their own microorganisms
- They don't have the same contamination level
- Check where new born animals come from
- If one is sick, immediately isolate it
- Avoid to introduce new animals during breeding period,
- Do not mix new born pigs, weaned piglets, fattening and reproductive pigs
- Move a population - move it all at once
Control of access | LIMIT THE RISK OF INTRODUCING NEW DISEASE BY :
- Farm access limitation to the animals
- Inform suppliers where they are allowed to go
- Provide visitors with boots, gloves and head protection
- Keep traceability of in and out movements
- Avoid circulation of pets or others animals
- Put wheels dips and foot dips to the strategic points
- Keep in mind the principle of "ALWAYS MOVE IN THE SAME DIRECTION"
Sanatiry measures | LIMIT THE RISK WITH STRICT HYGIEN ACTIONS :
- Systematic disinfection of the vehicles and equipments
- Systematic cleaning and disinfection of houses between each breeding period
- Disinfect the water and check its microbiological quality
- Place wheels dips and foot dips at entries
- Figh against rats, mice, insects...
- Do not mix equipments between farms or between different houses
Training | IT IS COMPULSORY TO TEACH THE PEOPLE WORKING IN THE FARMS :
- Explain : Why biosecurity is important ? When and how they have to dress themselves ? When and how the have to clean themselves ?
- Use many simple boards - Caution : KEEP CLOSE | DO NOT ENTER | EMPLOYEES ONLY. Dress symbols : BOOTS | GLOVES | COMBINATION...
- Take enough time and means to teach your people
