Last week, Romania’s Veterinary Health Authority identified CSF on two Smithfield production sites, one near Cenei and one near the Hungarian border.
Altogether, over 36,000 pigs have been euthanised and the site cleaned up.
Tests at additional Smithfield farms in the country have been negative.
Smithfield is the country’s largest pork producer in the western part, with 25 farms and a $1.1 billion investment.
Smithfield has been very active in Eastern Europe lately. The company is also investing in pig production sites in Poland.Related website:
