Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD)

Farmers are being reminded to be particularly stringent with their on-farm biosecurity as foot and mouth disease spreads through popular tourist destinations such as Bali and other parts of Indonesia.

  • Foot and mouth disease is spreading through popular Indonesian tourist destinations including Bali.
  • Don’t allow overseas visitors who have been in contact with animals onto farms for a least a week after their arrival.
  • Ensure stringent on-farm biosecurity protocols are in place and adhered to.
  • Do not feed uncooked food waste to pigs.
  • Become familiar with the symptoms of foot and mouth disease and do not hesitate to call a vet or 0800 80 99 66.
