BAI urges quick reporting of disease outbreaks

Roxas City (5 February) -- The Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) has underscored the importance of immediate reporting to concerned authorities in case of disease outbreaks in the livestock farms.

"We need honest-to-goodness disease reporting, especially in the provinces, so that interventions can be administered right away," said BAI Director Davinio Catbagan in a news article published in a national daily.

The quick reporting of disease outbreaks will enable the Department of Agriculture (DA) to quickly contain and curb the spread of diseases for eventual protection of the P162-billion livestock sector and the P118-billion poultry industry.

The BAI is also pushing for the issuance of a resolution penalizing violators or livestock raisers who failed to immediately report disease outbreaks.

Catbagan explained that reporting is a crucial component of the DA's disease control program, especially since the Philippines is one of the few countries in Asia that has remained bird-flu and food-and-mouth diseases, the news added.

Meanwhile, in Capiz there are about 280,000 heads of various livestocks have been recorded by the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics (BAS) Capiz in view of its livestock and poultry inventory as of January 1, 2008 to determine the status of farm animals in the province.

The recent inventory also revealed that the province has about 1.9 million ducks and chickens. (PIA) [top]
