Mindanao’s first automated disinfection systems for the prevention and control of African Swine Fever (ASF) are now installed in Bukidnon – one unit is installed at the Malaybalay Stock Farm (MSF) in Dalwangan, Malaybalay City and the other at Alae Quarantine Station, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon.
Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Office 10 (DA-RFO 10) led by Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado led the inauguration of the two units last Monday, September 28, aimed at improving the efficacy of the disinfection strategies and reduce reliance to frontliners. A third unit will be installed next year in Magsaysay, Misamis Oriental.
The automated disinfection system has a high automatic pressure sprayer and sensor with one set installed wall.
