Chiayi County Livestock Institute urges pig farmers to implement mosquito control and vaccination against Japanese encephalitis
As spring approaches, the weather is getting hotter and hotter, and although there is drought and water shortage, most of the farmland is still planted with rice. In order to prevent Japanese encephalitis in pigs, the Chiayi County Livestock Disease Control Center urges pig farmers to strengthen epidemic prevention work, including cleaning the pig farm environment, implementing various anti-mosquito measures and hanging mosquito traps. The pigs in the farm should also be injected with Japanese encephalitis vaccine every year to reduce the incidence of disease.
Japanese encephalitis (je) is a zoonotic disease transmitted by mosquito vectors such as mosquitoes tremaculatus and mosquitoes annulatus. Infected pigs easily cause stillbirth of pregnant sows, mummification of fetuses or weakness of newborn piglets, resulting in serious losses to operators.
The epidemic season of Japanese encephalitis in pigs is from April to October every year, and the epidemic peak is from June to July. Since mosquitoes are easy to breed in paddy fields, ditches and stagnant water containers, pig farms should strengthen the cleaning and disinfection of the surrounding environment to prevent pigs from contracting Japanese encephalitis, including removing stagnant water containers and dredging ditches, carrying out regular disinfection throughout the farm, and hanging mosquito trap lamps in livestock houses to effectively reduce the mosquito vector index.
Livestock appeal, because pregnant sows infected with the disease is easy to cause stillbirth and mummified fetus, it is recommended that new sows complete 2 doses of Japanese encephalitis vaccine before breeding, multiparous sows and breeding boars should be supplemented with 1 dose of vaccine every year, in order to effectively prevent.
The Livestock Institute reminds pig farmers once again that elimination of vector mosquitoes and vaccination are the most effective methods to prevent Japanese encephalitis at present. If necessary, mosquito catching lamps should be installed in the livestock houses. Observe the health status of pigs every day. If abnormal or suspected Japanese encephalitis diseases are found, please immediately report to the Livestock Institute epidemic prevention hotline 05-3620025. The Livestock Institute will provide necessary diagnosis and epidemic prevention treatment immediately.
