 ROSALES- Abono Partylist Chair Rosendo O. So said the emergence of African Swine Fever in villages in Pangasinan has not affected the current prices of pork in the market.

 He said this after more than 1,000 hogs were culled from the villages of Cabeldatan (357), Apaya (395), and Polong Norte ( 283) in Malasiqui, and the villages of San Isidro Sur (106), and  Linoc (21) in Binmaley.

“Based on our monitoring of pork prices in several markets in Pangasinan and other provinces in Northern Luzon, the prices are not affected. The public is already aware that ASF will not affect the health of those who eat  pork. We are doing our best too to isolate ASF-affected areas as reported in Pangasinan,” So said.

 So, the head of the Samahang Industriya ng Agrikultura, said his group is also currently investigating where the ASF-infected hogs or pork products that entered Malasiqui, came from.

 It can be recalled that the hogs that were ASF-infected and died in Linoc, Binmaley came from Malasiqui, which resulted in quarantine of nearby village of Carael in Dagupan City.

 “ We are continuously manning our check points with the help of our provincial government and local government units. Frozen meat products without the necessary permits are confiscated and buried immediately,” So said.

 So is also encouraging the municipal and barangay officials, and also the residents to report immediately if there are dead hogs in their areas.

 “ We need to work together and report immediately if there are dead hogs suspected as ASF-infected. This is to avert further spread of ASF in the province that will eventually affect the income of the hog raisers,” he said.
