Protect your farm against ASF

29. juli 2021 webinar

An outbreak of African Swine Fever on just one Danish pig farm will be catastrophic - economically and job-wise. It is therefore important that everyone working in Danish pig production are familiar with biosecurity regulations and guidelines - and how to keep Influenza infection out of the herd. This webinar will focus on both subjects, and participants will gain an insight into why as well as how we keep African Swine Fever out of the country. The primary target group are foreign employees, but anyone who needs a brush-up are welcome to join.

This webinar is also be held in Ukrainian on June 24 at 14.00-16.00 - Sign up for the webinar in Ukrainian ->
