Davao villages repopulated with swine 


DAVAO CITY — The City Veterinary Office (CVO) is conducting swine repopulation in the villages here affected by the African Swine Fever (ASF). 

These include Inayangan, Lamanan, Dominga of Calinan district; Magsaysay of Marilog district; and Colosas of Paquibato district. 

CVO head Cerelyn B. Pinili told a news briefing on Thursday 346 heads had been given to farmers in these villages for the repopulation efforts. 

The initiative is under the flagship hog repopulation program of the Department of Agriculture. 

Ms. Pinili said that her office had submitted reports to the agency and was just waiting for these villages to be declared out of the so-called red zones and into the pink zones. 

Under the zoning plan, provinces and regions are classified based on their ASF status, which limits the transport and sale of hogs, pork and pork products. 

Provinces and regions are classified as either containment or free zones. A containment zone could either be red (infected), yellow (surveillance), pink (buffer) or light green (protected). 

The affected villages tested positive for the African Swine Fever in February 2020. — Maya M. Padillo
