At-risk cattle vaccinated

PROVINCIAL officials from the Ministry of Agriculture have provided vaccines to more than 1,000 animals in an attempt to stem the spread of foot-and-mouth disease in Prey Veng province.

Heng Meth, chief of the veterinary department in the provincial ministry of agriculture in Mesang district, said officials from his working group gave vaccines by injection over the past week, and also provided information to farmers to help protect their livestock.

“When cattle die from the disease, villagers must bury them deeply or burn them. Please avoid eating the beef. Put the sick cattle away from the others and do not release them to graze in the rice fields,” he instructed.

Ros Sarou, 66, from Pon village in Chres commune, said the disease killed more than 10 head of cattle last week, including three of his own.
