Estonian veterinary authority suspects African swine fever on Järva County farm ({{commentsTotal}})

The Estonian Veterinary and Food Board (VFB) suspects the presence of African swine fever on a small farm with a total of fewer than ten pigs in Järva County, Central Estonia.

Samples were taken on the farm and sent to a lab for testing, VFB Deputy Director General Olev Kalda said.

"Let me remind all farmers once again that the danger of an outbreak of the disease on farms continues to be high, and the VFB must be notified of each occurrence of a symptom of the disease and the death of an animal," he added.

The highly contagious disease, which has a mortality rate of up to 100 percent, has already been detected on three farms in the neighboring Jõgeva County this year.
