While many swineherds in Phong Thu commune, Phong Dien district, Thua Thien-Hue province have been stricken by African swine fever, Nguyen Van Lich still sleeps well at night thanks to biological husbandry.

Other herds in Thua Thien-Hue province have survived through the epidemic thanks to a strict breeding process which is closely monitored by an organic farming enterprise.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, bio-products enhance a pig’s immunity against diseases, including African swine fever.

Experts say that bio-farming is the best way to help the animals fight disease, especially given that an African swine fever vaccine is still under development./.
