Belarus bans pork import from Latvia

18.04.2014 20:01

MINSK, 18 April (BelTA) – Belarus has imposed a ban on the import of pork from Latvia’s regions Dagda, Kraslava and Zilupe, BelTA learned from the department for veterinary and food supervision at the Agriculture and Food Ministry of Belarus.

According to the World Organization for Animal Health, cases of classical swine fever were detected in a number of Latvian municipalities.

In this regard the department insists that it is necessary to take measures to ban the import of pigs, boar sperm and byproducts, raw hides and casings, hog hair, brawn, hunter’s tropheys, fodder and supplements of animal and vegetable origin, including those made of poultry and fish, feed additives for cats and dogs made of products from Latvia which did not undergo heat treatment, used equipment for the slaughter and butchering of swine from Latvia to Belarus.

However, Belarus allows the import fodder and feed additives of animal and vegetable origin by transit via Latvian ports.

According to the department, the ban does not apply to the feed additives for poultry and cattle which were produced in factory conditions and do not contain animal raw materials. “It is necessary to take additional measures to ensure biological protection of big hog breeding factories and farms of all forms of ownership,” the ministry says.
