‘ENSURE SUPPLY OF HEALTHY CHICKEN’
Srinagar, Dec 21: Divisional Commissioner Kashmir Dr. Asgar Hassan Samoon has directed the authorities concerned to ensure that only healthy chicken, which are free from any disease, are supplied to the market.
Dr Samoon was addressing a high level meeting of officers here this evening, convened to review the unusual mortality of chicken in some areas of the Valley including Srinagar, Budgam and Ganderbal widely believed to have been caused by some suspected Ranikhet disease in the poultry.
Dr Samoon asked Director, Animal Husbandry, Kashmir to constitute teams at district level for inspection of all poultry farms and ensure that the birds are properly vaccinated to contain the diseases.
He said the Chief Animal Husbandry Officers will issue certificates to the effect that the birds are properly vaccinated and free from all diseases, before the birds are sold in the market.
In the absence of such certificate, the poultry birds can be impounded by the District Administration.
Director Animal Husbandry was also directed to ensure that day old chicks are subjected to rigorous test at Lower Munda at the time of import.
