26/05/2022: African Swine Fever outbreak in Southern Germany

A case of African Swine Fever has been declared in the South of Germany on Thursday 26 May, 7 km from the French border, which represents a jump of 500 km in disease.  The recent jumps to Italy and the further delay by the UK Government on the introduction of Border checks is of concern to the pig industry.  Linked below is a copy of a letter that CVO Scotland will issue to all registered pig keepers along with biosecurity guidance.
