Veterinary Authorities warn people against eating slaughtered diseased livestock

Health Veterinary Authorities warn people against eating slaughtered diseased livestock

Veterinary Authorities in Milenge District have warned people in the area to desist from consuming sick livestock.

Milenge District Assistant Veterinary Officer Beaurick Nyambe observed that some community members in the district have a tendency of slaughtering livestock when they discover that it is diseased.

Mr. Nyambe said the community members sell or eat the diseased animal which is dangerous to the health of the people.

ZANIS reports that the Veterinary Officer said this when he addressed farmers at Milenge Central Agricultural Camp.

Mr Nyambe said there is need for people who keep livestock to always ensure that their animals are checked by veterinary officers before slaughtering them to ensure that they are not diseased.

Mr. Nyambe further urged famers to have their chickens vaccinated against a new castle disease which affects chickens in the months of May, June and July.

He said the veterinary office in Milenge has since begun conducting the vaccination exercise and that farmers should take advantage to protect their chickens.
