Following suspicion of vesicular disease in pigs, and as a precaution to prevent the spread of disease, a 10 km Temporary Control Zone was declared around a premises near Feltwell, Kings Lynn and West Norfolk, Norfolk on 24 June 2022.
Following further official testing swine vesicular disease has been negated and the 10km Temporary Control Zone has been revoked. The premises remains under restriction pending the outcome of further tests.
These last 48 hours have been harrowing for all pig keepers as we waited to hear if we will be facing another disease epidemic.
Its a timely reminder of what we have to lose.
Please don't be the one who puts our breeds and the livelihoods of British pig farmers at risk by feeding kitchen waste to your pigs.
