Bauchi Releases N32M For Cow Vaccination

According to reports, Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed has released about N32m naira to vaccinate over 800,000 cows in the state.

This was revealed on Wednesday by the Governor, at the inauguration of the 2020/2021 annual livestock vaccination campaign at the Galambi Cattle Ranch, Bauchi.

According to him, “We have release over N32m for this exercise which will cover vaccines, equipment and allowances for our staff to do this exercise”.

He added that,  “The Ministry for Local Government has been directed to pay the allowances of all the participating staff in the 20 local government areas, as well as to purchase more materials to vaccinate more than 800,000 herds of cattle”.

Analyzing this further, the Governor has asserted that Bauchi State is a frontier in the production of livestocks across the country, with about 75 per cent of the state’s farming population engaged in one form of livestock business or the other.

Pharmacist Samaila Burga, who is the Commissioner of Agriculture in Bauchi State, added that the way to control disease in livestocks was through vaccination.
