Governor Yamamoto of Gunma Prefecture received a swine cholera infection in neighboring Saitama Prefecture and Nagano Prefecture, and on 19th, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Eto was vaccinated for pigs raised by farmers. Requested promptly.
Gunma Prefecture is the fourth-largest producer in Japan, with approximately 630,000 pigs as of February, but it has been confirmed that swine cholera infection has occurred in Saitama and Nagano prefectures adjacent to Gunma prefecture from last week to this week. As a result, pig farms in Gunma Prefecture are calling on the prefecture to strengthen infection prevention measures.
In response, Governor Yamamoto of Gunma Prefecture visited the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries on the 19th and requested the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Eto to take measures led by the country.
On top of that, Governor Yamamoto not only in Gunma Prefecture, but also demanded that all pigs bred nationwide be vaccinated promptly so that distribution and price were not affected, and wild boars were spread. Because it is considered to be one of the causes of this, we asked for the application of food mixed with vaccine.
Governor Yamamoto said, “The minister fully understood how serious hog cholera is for Gunma Prefecture, and I felt reassured. I will continue to take the best possible measures as the prefecture while paying close attention to future trends in the country. I commented "I want to".
