Biosecurity in swine farming is one of the main tools to combat diseases that can affect the farm, such as African swine fever and foot-and-mouth disease, diseases that are capable of economically affecting the rural property. But did you know that Senar Mato Grosso do Sul has training that guides producers to properly prevent themselves?
In the Senar/MS qualification portfolio, the course “Good Agricultural Practices in Pig farming” in addition to instructing students in biosecurity, also teaches about the composition of the farm, general care, good practices in animal handling, food and water, environmental management , good practices in cleaning and disinfection, disposal of materials and worker safety.
The technical consultant, Fernanda Oliveira, highlights that knowledge about biosecurity in swine farming helps to prevent diseases. “It is important for producers to apply biosecurity measures on the farm, to keep state properties free from African swine fever and foot and mouth disease, protecting our state and national livestock heritage, and avoiding economic barriers”.
The course has a workload of 16 hours and can be requested by the rural union of your municipality. For more information, visit: senarms.org.br
To complement the information on matters related to livestock, health and animal welfare, Famasul publishes a weekly Sanitary Release that brings a collection of information on the subject to help rural producers with regard to biosecurity and animal health standards.
