New health measures piloted on farm

New biosecurity measures will be put in place on pig units in three pilot projects just given the go ahead, as part of the national BPEX Pig Health Improvement Project (PHIP).

This marks the eagerly-awaited second stage of the programme for pig producers in Yorkshire and East Anglia, which were the first to get started on regional health improvement – gathering and mapping health information and forming a regional network of producers.

The three on-farm pilot groups – two in Yorkshire and one in East Anglia – will help establish the effectiveness of certain measures in improving pig health status in a sustainable way. BPEX has helped the producer groups access RDPE funding to support the practical steps they are taking.

One group is upgrading its loading ramps to improve biosecurity and, in the second group, one of the farms is doing a full depopulation. The third group, comprising more than 30 units, is carrying out a targeted PRRS vaccination.
