Silistra. The samples for African swine fever taken in the village of Bozveliysko have proven negative, said Bulgarian Minister of Agriculture, Food and Forestry Rumen Porozhanov, who has inspected today the fence along the land border with Romania near Silistra, Focus News Agency reports. Despite the negative samples, however, the minister urged all owners of domestic pigs to slaughter them as a preventive measure. He further said that all unregistered domestic pigs should be registered as soon as possible.
Later in the day, Minister Porodzanov will have meetings in Bucharest with his Romanian counterparts responsible for agriculture and rural development, as well as water and forestry to discuss important issues and coordinate efforts. Minister Porodzanov said the wire fence is well built and is doing a good job in preventing wild boars from entering Bulgaria. He further said that the meeting will also focus on backyard farming as small holdings do not have registration or biosecurity measures in place and are more vulnerable to infection.
