Cattle in Singaing receive foot-and-mouth virus vaccine

THE Livestock, Breeding and Veterinary Department (LBVD) is giving free vaccinations for farm animals across the nation to prevent against foot-and-mouth disease.
As part of the programme, the department in Singaing Township, Mandalay Region, recently made a field trip to inject cattle across the township with foot-and-mouth disease vaccines. During the trip, the medical team led by Dr Win Htut, head of the township department, vaccinated more than 1,300 cattle owned by farmers from seven villages—Monepin, Patta, Singainggyi, Thingatone, Ohntone, Sanpya and Chaungpat.
The team also provided additional medical care to the farm animals. This is the third time the department has carried out a free foot-and-mouth vaccination programme in the region.—Tin Tin Htwe
