12 thousand pigs are liquidated at the Cherkizovo enterprise in the Tambov region due to ASF
An outbreak of a dangerous disease has been identified at the fattening production site of OOO Cherkizovo-Svinovodstvo in the Bondarsky District of the Tambov Region. Three round-the-clock veterinary-police posts prevent the export of pigs and products from the focus of infection and the first threatened zone.
It includes eight settlements: the villages of Grazhdanovka, Korovino, Kurovshchina, Maksimovka, Usovo, Chernavka, Shilovo and the village of Sovetsky. Veterinarians carry out house-to-house visits in this area and keep a stock of pigs.
According to the regional administration, a decree is being prepared to alienate pigs on the territory of the Bondarsky district. However, without waiting for him, the enterprise began to carry out a set of preparatory measures to organize the slaughter and burning of the livestock - 12 thousand pigs.
How the ASF virus got to the feedlot is being investigated by the Russian MIA Administration for the Tambov Region.
A month ago, an outbreak of ASF was recorded at the enterprise of another of the largest manufacturers in Russia - the Miratorg company. About 10 thousand pigs were killed there.
