…Against African swine fever
Veterinary Officers have begun fumigating the Ejisu Cluster of Pig Farms where Africa Swine Fever has killed over 3000 pigs.
The exercise which took place on Friday was meant to disinfect the farm of the virus which had robbed more than fifty (50) farmers of their livelihood and capital.
Earlier, the farmers had been asked to find means to buy chemicals to disinfect the farms themselves.
But officials of the Ejisu Veterinary Service said they had received support from the national headquarters through the Ashanti Regional office.
It is however unclear when the farmers can return to their farms.
Meanwhile, the farmers are still collating the necessary data for proper assessment by the health officials and the Ejisu Municipal Assembly.
