Foot, Mouth Disease Zone Declared In Deep South

Recommended Posts

Foot, mouth zone declared

SONGKHLA: -- The province of Songkhla has been declared a foot and mouth disease epidemic area after the disease was detected in cattle in Sadao district, while in Ranot district, 4,460 ducks were culled after a flu virus was found. Songkhla Governor Somporn Chaibangyang said the declaration, which covers every district in the southern province, would last until Dec 30. Movement of livestock and carcasses out of the infected areas without permission was prohibited, he said.

At the same time, veterinarian Sophit Thanyasanakul, of the Songkhla provincial livestock office, said free-range ducks in Ranot district were found to have contracted bird flu virus, prompting the immediate cull of 4,460 ducks belonging to three farmers.

The duck farmers would get state compensation as they had cooperated in the mandatory slaughter, she said.

it is hoof and mouth disease and i wonder why there isnt a govt agric. vaccination program.... my goats/sheep get vaccinated at age 4 mo's for plague, hoof and mouth, brucellosis and some others that i cant remember in english.... but all of asia and middle east is considered a 'touched' area this year with many break outs here also among wild ruminants and unvac. (beduin) ruminants....

random chance... dont let anyone in to lyour cow yard w/o dipping their boots/feet....

Foot and mouth is not exactly rare here,there are small outbreaks all the time, although they dont go in for the mass kullings that happen back in Briton . There are Gov vaccination programs, we get free vacine every 6 months. I would imagine that a lot of the smaller "mom and pop" beef farms dont bother though.

I guess all those Isaarn people, when relocating down-South, might have taken their water-buffalo with them ?

I heard that , in Thailand, foot-and-mouth is regarded as a survivable-disease for cattle, and therefore the government doesn't over-react as in the UK-outbreak. It also makes sense IMHO to vaccinate - the UK doesn't allow this, as the cow would then test 'positive' for the disease.

nonsense, my herd is vaccinated every year; and all kidlings/lambs when 4 mo's...

we have herds of gazelle that are the carriers here so they are also culled ....

it is survivable but very very costly to a large milk herd for instance.... and also zoonotic i think, have to check that one;. usually required vaccines for herds are based on diseases that cause havoc and economic destruction/and or zoonotic (cross over to humans)....

random, when/if u have time... would appreciate list of gov. info in thai/eng and vaccine schedules etc... , or extension services that are worth it... or u could pinnup in vet/pet forum?? starting to do some advance research for future: buffalo, cow, and a goat or two for me(milk)....

mom and pop establishments the world over are always the problem for vaccine plans etc... they are skipped over, dont show, or cant /dont want to bother to do it all... leaving little pockets of agric. diseases hanging around for next oppurtinity...

we've got newcastle running rampant in israel now: now i have to vaccinate the ducks and chickens... at least its not bird flu.....
