Recently followers of Food Freedom or FarmWars or PPJ would have read of the insane and Unexplained rush to eradicate a whole lot of Old Breed and Heritage Pigs in certain AmeriKKan states byt the USDA swat teams.
No Sane explanations given as to why? the sudden rush to remove everything they can that isn’t in a CAFO and an inbred weak pink piggy.
The sheer Insanity of culling what are precious rare breeds with hugely valuable gene pools, and yeah ,ok some mongrel crosses, but owned and constrained and cared for none the less but this campaign seemed ONLY to be targeting well cared for owned and small farmed breeders.
Well, I may? have discovered the reason behind it.
I can’t be sure, but I sure can take an educated guess they had an Ulterior motive for it.
I apologise that to read why you will have to go to links, the site I found info on will not allow even small para snips.
Awhile back I found an odd report about Russia having an outbreak of an UNusual strain of Swine Fever..its not so rare BUT it is for anywhere outside of ? Africa.
not the first report I read but the most recent.
now under it in an item NOT given newsletter prominence was this one
Funny…when I read the first report I wondered about the means it would have had to come into Russia by..
the Second one sure fills in the gaps as to possible import vectors.
And Gee the good ol USDA had EXperts…on ground.
Call me suspicious, it sure seems all too co incidental to BE a coincidence!
a Vaccine program gone wrong?
or a Vaccine program doing what was intended? hmm?
Now what may have been given to certain USA piggeries by accident or intent?
maybe? designed to target old and wild breeds? but didnt work as planned?
or carried home by the EXperts just like White Nose and Chiclid fungus was???
There’s huge agribiz interests in Pig genetics and the Monmen patented genetics from old breeds claiming it theirs..
Also very weird closer to ameriKKan shores a report of a Piggery in Chile about to cull all 500 K pigs on their farm.
because the townsfolk nearby couldnt stand the stench..supposedly caused by Aerator failure.
sorry but that would not create such a huge smell issue as far as I can ascertain. If the aerator ceased the pools would go anoxic, and be degassing Methane a risk for explosion but also not a “smelly” gas. the residues would stink sure, but they have a water cover. Aerators oxygenate end stir, they have nothing to do with pumps and water supposedly running into local streams etc, thats another issue. Theres a whole lot wrong about this story.
However a whole pile of Dead pigs would create a pong smelt for miles in numbers..
Its said the workers left the pigs without food and water..afterwards, and many have died. Sorry, but for the millions of dollars/pesos whatever.. involved in operations like this and automated systems that could be operated by management etc, its not ringing true.
If anyone has better info by all means post it commentwise:-)
here’s the item.
Now if this was your business wouldn’t you be selling anything you could anywhere you could as fast as possible?
In a country with high population and demand?
why? would you cull Half a MILLION moneymaking animals
Insurance? as an Insurer I would fail their claim. Negligence doesn’t make the grade. BUT if you had pigs dying, before, and then publicity and you are worried what might be found??? hmm? then culling suddenly makes more sense.
===============now about ANTHRAX It is reported an Entirely NEW STRAIN of Anthrax has been found in?
Kyrgyzstan. rather an odd spot for this?
NOT so strange if you know that Prior years Russian Bioweapons labs were placed in some very out of the way areas..and were not exactly decomissioned as such.
Reliance on site island in a lake…and the lake dried up years ago for eg.
OR that could be an easy assumption for many to call, when it’s a new lab product released by someone wanting to see what it does in somewhere far off shore..?
The very problematic issue here is this
new” strain is not only apparently a nonresponder to present Vax.
It also is infecting animals WITH prior Vaccination to standard strains.
Then I see this report
they do NOT mention strain in this..and they also have Epic FAIL as regards notification timeframe of reports and area control.
As a long lasting soil borne vector they are in deep shit.
Decades old cattle trails in usa still have Anthrax spores viable and infecting unlucky animals using them from time to time. In a humid climate the risk of spread is so much worse.
I will continue to keep an eye out for related reports and update as I find.
