El Salvador: $4.3 Million for Cattle Health
The funds will go towards a General Health Directorate program to improve the health of the country's cattle herds.
Thursday, July 29, 2010
The program will begin in the east of El Salvador where 225,000 kits will be distributed to detect, prevent and control diseases that affect production.
An announcement has been made that all animals born after 2015 must be registered so that, by 2020, the herd can be incorporated into the regional traceability system.
There were 1,575,779 head of cattle on 45,780 ranches, an increase of 14.2% compared to the figures reported in 2011.
The country is claiming to be free of the disease known as ‘Mad Cow Syndrome’.
Only 15 countries in the world have achieved this recognition from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). Panama is the sixth in America, along with Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.
