#BABayASF | Hog raisers from African Swine Fever-free barangays in Kabacan, Cotabato were also informed about biosecurity measures to avoid the spread of ASF in their piggeries.
This was after the Department of Agriculture 12, Bureau of Animal Industry, DA-Agricultural Training Institute, and local government unit conducted the second day of IEC Campaign on ASF in their town. Said program is one of the government's response in controling the disease in the country.
"May magagawa pa po tayo para maprotektahan ang industriya ng pagbababoy sa ating bayan...Ang biosecurity ang solusyon para masugpo natin ang ASF," said Dr. Mary Catherine Delima.
Meanwhile, the Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation also shared its Livestock Mortality Insurance Program to the farmer-attendees in which swine is considered as insurable animal.
