The Association of Livestock Health Defense Lorca, Adespolorca, has organized an awareness day to disseminate the work of modernization, improvement and innovation that is being carried out by their partners in the farms of the sector.
The initiative, according to its president, Francisco Román, consists in carrying out a route through different farms located mainly in the high districts of the municipal district of Lorca, to which different social groups and representatives of political parties were invited.
This activity arises with the aim of making known among all Lorca the reality of pig farms.
We want people to know how these facilities have evolved over the years, since we have detected that there are still those who have the false idea that these are dirty and neglected farms.
What we want is for citizens to be aware of the reality of the sector, what progress has been made in this respect, and the new conditions that are required of pig farms.
Lorca breeders have adapted their farms to the existing specific legislation, which includes, among other measures, an extension of the space for animals.
The application of the standards has not only required an adaptation, sometimes very expensive, of the facilities, but also involves a modification of the management and care systems.
In order to make it easier for the farmer to comply with the regulations and provide guidance for the adaptation of their exploitation and animal handling, several guidance and assistance documents have been prepared, which we make available to all interested parties from Adespolorca. through the link: https://www.mapa.gob.es/es/ganaderia/temas/produccion-y-mercados-ganaderos/bienestanimal/en-la-granja/Ganado_porcino.aspx
The pig farms have changed a lot in a short time, thanks to the efforts of the farmers.
Now we have cleaner and more modern facilities, where the treatment of animals is watched with special care, in addition to complying scrupulously with the most demanding sanitary and veterinary regulations in Europe.
In this way we are able to offer the best pig meat to the market, the healthiest and with all the guarantees.
We can affirm, always from the humility, that Lorca currently offers the best pork of the market, and this we owe it to the daily work that the professionals of the sector realize.
Adespolorca, established in 1990 with the aim of raising the sanitary level and productivity of integrated livestock farms, through the establishment and execution of health programs, has among its facilities the Center for Regional Insemination (Cipra) and has more than 800 associates.
