Cattle from Thailand, three others, banned

THE Department of Agriculture (DA) has banned the importation of live cattle and buffaloes, including related by-products, originating from Thailand, Russia, Libya and South Korea following reports of disease outbreaks.

Confirmed outbreaks of lumpy skin disease (LSD), which damages the affected animal’s skin — making hides less valuable — or even cause death, prompted the imposition of the temporary ban on the entry of live animals and products such as milk, embryos, hides and semen.
