Mandalay Region LBVD to vaccinates cattle against foot-and-mouth disease


Mandalay Region Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department has a plan to vaccinate more than 200,000 cattle against foot-and-mouth disease in 10 townships in Mandalay Region, with the assistance of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).
Under the programme, which is part of the Emerald Green project to alleviate poverty in rural areas, priority will be given to 10 townships in the region —Amarapura, Singaing, TadaU, Kyaukse, Myittha, Ngazun, Meiktila, Wundwin, Natogyi and Myingyan — where a large number of beef and dairy cows are bred.
“Vaccination will be given to cattle of above one-and-a-half years old,” said an official of the region department. “The vaccination gives six months’ protection from the disease.”—Maung Pyi Thu (Mandalay)
