Authorities need to raise bio-security and control import of chicken


Poultry producers and farm workers have been receiving bio-security training in Monywa, Sagaing Region, Chairman of Mandalay Region Livestock Breeding Federation Dr Kyaw Htin told media.
He noted that it is necessary to control import of chicken to local markets while the authorities are taking preventive measures of avian influenza disease.
Newcastle disease, E-coli and other poultry diseases may break out in early summer period.
Breeders need to send any chickens that die suddenly to the laboratory in Singaing Township to examine the bodies.
“Authorities concerned should control chicken production of local entrepreneurs and import of chicken. A law concerning the import and sales of chicken has been enacted but its rules have not been approved yet,” said a legal expert.
An official of LBVD stressed the need to remove piles of byproducts from chicken at roadsides in Madaya and Patheingyi townships because this waste spreads the disease surrounding areas.
Mandalay Region LBVD plans to hold talks on raising bio-security in the region and prevention of seasonal diseases at animals as of March.–Maung Pyi Thu (Mandalay)
