Pig and Poultry Farming

African Swine Fever (ASF) a severe viral, transboundary animal (TAD) disease affecting domestic and wild pigs. It is responsible for serious production & economic losses.

→ There is no vaccine against ASF – cure is impossible!


Biosecurity measures are essential!


In this context, Kersia is committed to supporting pig farms through offering complete and comprehensive and tested biosecurity products and solutions, through our ‘‘Cleaning, Disinfection and Protection’’ Programs.


  • CLEANING: Effective cleaning of surfaces and equipment ensures the best possible condition for disinfection.
  • DISINFECTION: Successful disinfection is the elimination of micro-organisms through the selection of a proven disinfectant, applied at the correct dilution rate with adequate contact time.
  • PROTECTION: Comprehensive Biosecurity measures are required to prevent micro-organisms from re-entering and contaminating clean buildings and equipment.
