Yangon Region Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department (LBVD) is strictly taking preventive measures for biosecurity to control the viral disease of animals to protect the economic benefits of the cattle breeders in the Yangon region.
The infectious diseases pose risk to the livestock after the flood. Additionally, the seasonal conditions can affect animal disease behaviour and the livestock are vulnerable to the biodiversity changes as well.
“To contain the spread of infectious diseases for cattle, the survey is conducted in the places where endemicity of livestock diseases are substantially higher. The sample of ruminants is simultaneously sent to the laboratory to test their changes are related to biodiversity changes or infectious diseases. This way, the department aims to protect the economic benefits of the breeders. Furthermore, awareness campaigns of animal diseases are being raised in the villages. Participation in the LBVD’s vaccination programme is cooperation as prevention is better than cure.The department is implementing the preventive measures for the cattle,” said Dr Min Nyunt Oo, deputy head of the Yangon region LBVD.
There are 3,868 cows and 12,568 dairy cattle from 56 farms, 1,830 beef cattle from 37 farms and 1,830 buffalo from 56 farms in Yangon Region. The department is distributing the frozen semen free of charge in an artificial insemination programme.
The LBVD is implementing research for successful dairy production, cultivation of the crops for gazing and producing the purebred dairy cattle that fit for the region at the Pyinmabin dairy cattle research centre and demonstration farm in Mingaladon Township. The biosecurity practices can bring about economic benefits in livestock breeding. — Nyein Thu (MNA)/GNLM
