Livestock farmers who do not have a foot and mouth disease (FMD) vaccination certificate for their livestock will be unable to do business at a livestock market and will be denied permission to ship livestock products to slaughterhouses.
According to a report by Jeju Special Self-Governing Province on June 28, the new order requiring the certificate was implemented on June 24. It affects not only cattle and pigs but also goats.
Farmers without the certificate may be fined up to 5 million won, according to Article 60 of the Domestic Animal Infectious Disease Control Law.
On a related note, the province will conduct booster injections on cattle and pigs from Aug. 20 to 28.
For further inquiries, call the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province, 064-710-2151.
