Foot-and-mouth disease at South Korea dairy farm confirmed

Tuesday, 7 February 2017

SEOUL: South Korea confirmed a case of foot-and-mouth disease at a dairy farm, the country’s first outbreak less than a year, its agriculture ministry said.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs said yesterday in a statement that the disease had been detected at a dairy farm in Boeun county. All 195 cows raised in the farm had been culled to contain the disease.

The agriculture ministry said it has stepped up quarantine measures including a movement ban for farms within a 3km-radius of where the disease had been found.

The ministry also said the disease was unlikely to be widespread as it was one of the 3 types that the country inoculates against.
