TNC Campaign against Anthrax

228 Views

The County Government of Tharaka Nithi has embarked on an emergency campaign against anthrax, foot and mouth disease; and rabies. This follows recent livestock disease surveillance that has confirmed an outbreak of anthrax, rabies, lump, skin disease and foot and mouth disease around Karamani and Kirege sub locations in Mugwe and Magumoni wards respectively. Reports have indicated that 15 cattle and 14 sheep have been confirmed dead due to anthrax in the last two months. At least six cases of foot and mouth disease were diagnosed in Kanoro village of Kirege sub location in the past week.

The county veterinary department has closely taken action not limited to imposing of quarantine to ensure that further spread is contained.

We have made arrangements to ensure that we acquire required vaccines to deal with the emergency. We have subsized rates:

From 100sh to 50sh for cattle
From 50sh to 20sh for goats
From 70sh to 30 for cats dogs and donkeys.

This is a a focus towards ensuring that Mwananchi is cushioned against loses and that our livestock market niche grows to meets international standards as we move towards exploring and improving our diverse livestock value chain opportunities.
This campaign is aimed at stopping the spread of the disease and cushion our farmers from losses that may be as a result of the diseases.

Lvestock farmers are advised to pay keen attention and immediately report any abnormal behaviour to veterinary officers. At the same time the public is cautioned against consuming uninspected meat especially during the festive season when due to the surging demand people could eat unchecked beef and other animal products. Ensure your cut is stamped as fit for human consumption.

Below is a list of vaccination centers date and time.
