Poland: Poland Waives Certain Biosecurity Requirements for Backyard Pig Farms

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   PL2023-0015

On May 10, 2023, a regulation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development entered into force, reducing biosecurity requirements for raising pigs kept for the production of meat for own use. However, representatives of commercial farms, as well as the veterinarians, have criticized the new provisions due to fears of increased risk of African swine fever spread by small farmers, undermining the work of the past 9 years to control the disease and minimize negative trade impacts.
