AN GIANG — The An Giang Province’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has strengthened measures to control and prevent diseases among cattle and poultry.
The provincial veterinary sector has vaccinated cattle and poultry and disseminated information about avian influenza prevention to all households.
In addition, the province has stepped up inspections of animals transported to the province, slaughter units, and animal feed mills.
The province’s Department of Animal Health has worked with agencies at Vĩnh Hội Đông and Phú Hội commune border gates to prevent smuggling across the border.
The province has yet to detect any violation.
The province has 75,000 cows, 113,000 pigs and 4.3 million poultry.
By the end of the year, the province expects to provide 29,529 tonnes of beef and pork, 6,639 tonnes of poultry, and 368 million poultry eggs.
Since the beginning of the year, thanks to a stable consumption market, along with disease prevention, many breeding facilities have developed well.
Beef prices are now at VNĐ130,000 to VNĐ150,000 per kilo, equivalent to VNĐ39 million to VNĐ45 million per cow.
The price of pigs remains at the high price of VNĐ49,000 to VNĐ50,000 per kilo, an increase of VNĐ20,000 to VNĐ30,000 compared to earlier this year.
In addition, the price of poultry meat has increased from VNĐ3,000 to VNĐ5,000 per kilo. — VNS
