The culling and burial of close to 80 000 pigs at two industrial pig farms in Bulgaria’s Rousse district where outbreaks of African Swine Fever (ASF) were detected have been completed, Bulgarian National Television said on August 10.

At the industrial pig farms, in the villages of Nikolovo and Brushlen, a specialist company is carrying out disinfection.

The procedure will take about 10 days, after which the farms will additionally have to disinfect their premises and all equipment. This, according to their managers, will last about two to three months.
