– Introduction of infected pig meat into the farm. Stop any of your workers from eating pork on or off the farm. 

– Feeding of swill that contains raw or insufficiently cooked infected pork and pig remains or access to such remains through scavenging. At the moment, farmers should not get any leftover foods from food eateries. Feed using processed feeds, leaves from the garden. 

– Movement of vehicles and people between farms during an outbreak.
