A survey aimed at small-scale pig keepers, including smallholders, pet pig keepers and hobby keepers, has been launched by the UK Government and devolved administrations.
The survey forms part of the UK's campaign to combat the introduction and spread of the pig disease African swine fever. It aims to find out more about what small-scale pig keepers already know about the disease, as well as asking about their feeding and biosecurity practices and what sources they refer to for guidance on keeping pigs.
The results of the survey will be used to improve information available to pig keepers to help protect the health of their pigs and the UK pig industry.
The survey closes on 31 August 2020. See the full press release for more information.
