Purchase of equipment to ensure biosecurity in a mountainous swine farm
EU food safety improved by CAP funding for young Romanian pig farmer.
A young farmer used CAP support to modernise his pig farm’s ability to tackle threats from African swine fever and other zoonotic diseases by purchasing new sanitary management equipment and an electricity generator.
This project helped to protect the farm business and security of food supplies by minimising risk of animal health problems.
The farm has achieved Level III biosecurity standards and now safely manages some 4,000 animals.
The new equipment has improved biosecurity, reduced costs, and raised standards, while the purchase of an electricity generator helps to ensure the farm’s energy autonomy.
