NVizcaya is still free from hog cholera

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (September 6) -- The province is still free from the dreaded hog cholera disease due to the vigilance of meat inspectors manning the checkpoints, according to the provincial veterinary office here.

Dr. Cristopher Seraspi, provincial veterinarian said hog cholera disease failed to make an entry to the Nueva Vizcaya because of the presence of quarantine checkpoints within the entry and exit points of the province.

Seraspi said the quarantine checkpoint set up in Sta. Fe town, which serves as the gateway to Cagayan Valley region and another one along the boundary of Bagabag town and Lamut, Ifugao have been conducting daily monitoring of hog dealers entering and coming out of the province.

"We have issued alert order following the outbreak of cholera in some provinces which might infect hogs in our province. So far, we are still hog cholera free province," Seraspi stressed.

He said that when the hog cholera disease struck the provinces of Bulacan and Pampanga, Nueva Vizcaya temporarily supplied meat requirements of Metro Manila.

With the dwindling supply, Seraspi said hog raisers might soon be benefited because of possible increase on the price of meat. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
