□ The “fried pig gangs” in some areas caused panic by artificially discarding dead pigs to pig farms, enticing pig farmers to profit from selling them at low prices, and a chain-like criminal gang has been formed.
□ In order to ensure the safety of meat quality during the New Year's Day and the Spring Festival, local agricultural and rural departments will carry out joint law enforcement with public security and market supervision to crack down on illegal acquisition, trafficking, slaughter of dead pigs, indiscriminate slaughter, processing and sale of dead pork products, etc. Behavior to ensure the quality and safety of pig products
Recently, "fried pigs" have appeared in some areas, which has aroused the attention of the whole society. According to reports, the swine fever epidemic in Africa and the strengthening of transportation regulation and regional prevention and control policies have made "frying pig groups" smell "business opportunities". These gangs throw discarded dead pigs to farmers, then produce and spread public opinion on the occurrence of African swine fever in the farms, seduce farmers to panic sell-offs, and then significantly reduce the price of live pigs, thereby achieving "frying pigs" for profit the goal of.
In response, Wang Junxun, the second inspector of the Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Bureau of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, said that the above-mentioned "fried pigs" were suspected of violating the "Animal Epidemic Prevention Law", which seriously affected the normal development of African swine fever prevention and control, severely disrupted the production order of pigs and harmed farmers. Legal rights. The "fried pig group" artificially discarded dead pigs to the pig farms, creating panic, and enticed pig farmers to sell to them at a low price to make a profit, forming a chain-type criminal gang.
In order to crack down on "fried pigs" behavior, the "Notice on Combating and Preventing" Fried Pigs "Behavior and Guaranteeing the Safety of Livestock Farming Production" issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs requires that investigations on transportation and discarding of sick and dead pigs should be strengthened. For symptoms of African swine fever, control measures must be taken immediately to regulate the handling of sick and dead pigs. Give full play to the role of the African swine fever prevention and control emergency command mechanism in the region, implement centralized and unified command on the fight against and prevention of "frying pigs", strengthen the link between administrative law enforcement and criminal justice of animal epidemic prevention, and severely crack down on "frying pigs". At the same time, those who found clues related to the gangsters and evils were promptly handed over to the office of the leading group for the special struggle to combat gangsters and eliminate evils.
At present, China's hog breeding accounts for half of the world's total. More than 99% of the 26 million farms are small and medium-sized casual farmers. The awareness of epidemic prevention among these free-range farmers is generally not strong and the level of biosecurity is not high. And research shows that long-distance transportation of live animals and poultry is one of the reasons for the spread of animal epidemics. At the same time, residents of our country like to eat hot fresh meat, and a large number of live pigs are transported long distances, which increases the risk of carrying and spreading of transport vehicles and trafficking brokers. Therefore, since the outbreak of African swine fever, the country has adopted a policy to strengthen the regulation of transportation.
According to the needs of African swine fever prevention and control, since the beginning of 2019, Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangxi, Hunan, Guangxi, and Hainan, and other six provinces (autonomous regions) in central and southern China have carried out pilot work on regional prevention and control. For example, Dingnan County, Jiangxi Province was once a county where pigs were transferred, and the African swine fever epidemic brought a great impact to the local pig industry. Under the district prevention and control pilot framework, the county is on the one hand grasping the transformation of breeding methods, promoting the "company + farmer" breeding model, relying on leading enterprises to drive industry development, and ensuring that environmental and epidemic prevention conditions meet the requirements; Transform the traditional way of transporting live pigs, and promote the transition from "transfer of pigs" to "moving meat".
Yang Zhenhai, director of the Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Bureau of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, said that the implementation of regional prevention and control is of great significance for animal disease prevention and control. From the domestic perspective, of the 155 domestic pig outbreaks that have been identified, about 64.5% were caused by the transfer of live pigs and their products, and the transmission of related personnel and vehicles. From an international perspective, regionalized management of animal epidemics is a common international practice. In particular, countries that have successfully eradicated the African swine fever epidemic have implemented district-based prevention and control. Therefore, the implementation of zonal prevention and control in China and the strengthening of transportation supervision are objective requirements for protecting live pig production.
After the outbreak of African swine fever, there are more and more provinces in which the transfer of pigs is restricted. "Several years ago, after the outbreak of poultry H7N9, government departments promoted the change of the original live poultry trading model and the development of chilled and frozen poultry meat, which played a major role in promoting industrial upgrading." National Pig Industry Technology System Industrial Economy The director of the research department, Wang Yan, believes that, similarly, after the African swine fever epidemic, the transport of live pigs over long distances will be reduced, and the industry transformation will usher in development opportunities.
In order to ensure the safety of meat quality during the New Year's Day and the Spring Festival, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs launched a three-month special campaign to combat illegal pig slaughter. Local agricultural and rural departments will cooperate with public security, market supervision and other departments to carry out joint law enforcement to severely crack down on illegal criminal acts such as illegal acquisition, trafficking, slaughter of dead pigs, indiscriminate slaughter, processing and sale of dead pork products, and guarantee the quality and safety of pig products.
