PIA Press Release

Dry spell affects animals in Ifugao

by Dan B. Codamon

Lagawe, Ifugao (20 February) -- The Provincial Veterinary Office here recently reported that key livestock areas in the province have been affected by the dry spell since there is a decreasing amount of food and water for the animals as the rivers are also drying.

Grasses are also very scarce if not all dried up especially in the ranches which depend mostly on rainfall to supply water for the cattle.

Most affected at present are the municipalities of Alfonso Lista, Aguinaldo, Lamut and Lagawe which have the highest livestock in the province.

Aguinaldo reported the death of 27 cattle and four goats due to starvation and heatstroke while Alfonso Lista has eight cattle, two carabaos and five goats dead. Lagawe also reported the death of two carabaos, three cattle and two goats while Lamut had 10 goats dead.

According to Provincial Veterinarian Dr. James Gopeng, if this scenario will continue, it is expected that there will be an increase in mortality of the livestock due to starvation and disease outbreaks.

The Veterinary Office is currently undertaking remedial measures such as the utilization of crop residues, cut and carry of grown corn stover as feed, selling of the animals, construction of deep wells and cut and carry of leguminous trees or shrubs as feed to mitigate the increasing death of the animals and other livestock.
