Indonesia to Tighten Livestock Imports

Summary

The Indonesian Agricultural Quarantine Agency issued Circular No. 12950/KR.120/K/05/2022 to increase the awareness of the mouth-and-nail disease (FMD) infecting livestock animals. The agency head, Bambang, said that he had instructed all technical implementing units (UPT) to monitor the traffic of imported livestock closely.

According to Bambang, the first preventive step is to stop issuing any permits related to the distribution of animals that may contract the FMD virus, such as cattle, buffalo, goats, sheep, pigs, and other susceptible animals. "As well as meat, raw skin, dairy products, semen, and embryos from these animals," Bambang said on Tuesday. The permit ban applies only in Gresik, Lamongan, Sidoarjo, Mojokerto regencies, and other areas affected by the FMD.
