Swill Feeding Causes ASF Outbreak in Kenya

KENYA - A new outbreak of African Swine Fever (ASF) has been reported on a pig farm in central Kenya.

The outbreak affected a farm in Kiamumbi. Of the 180 pigs susceptible, there were 52 cases.

All 52 pigs reported with ASF died and the other 128 pigs on the farm were killed as a precaution.

The affected animals were in an enclosed establishment and were fed on swill, which is thought to be the cause of the outbreak.
