Abstract

“The paper is focused on proposed of prevention measures of biosecurity against spread of African swine fever (ASF) virus into the individual pig production systems on the basis specific transmission ways. The basic measure to prevent the spread of AMP is to comply with the principles of biosecurity in all farming systems and stages of pig breeding. The effectiveness of preventive measures depends primarily on the pig farming system and the farm size.
In small-scale and organic pigs breeding units with pig access to outside runs or grassland, there are only limited possibilities of introduction and keeping the general principles of biosecurity. In large-scale pigs breeding units are the principles of biosecurity an integral part of good husbandry practices.”
