Risk for immunocompromised cows
The death of more than 1,200 cows in Rajasthan due to this disease, which kills immune-compromised cattle, has caused great shock and sadness among cattle breeders. Officials of the Animal Husbandry Department said, ‘The disease has spread to 25,000 cattle within a span of 3 months. 254 cattle have died due to skin disease in Jodhpur district. Considering the serious nature of this disease, camps have been set up at various places by the Veterinary Department.
25 thousand cows affected
We have advised the cow breeders to keep the cows separately. Initially, the disease was detected only in the border districts of Jaisalmar and Burmar. Now the disease has spread to western and northern parts of Rajasthan. This skin disease that targets cattle mostly affects cows. So far more than 25 thousand cows have been affected by this disease. The disease, which spreads rapidly among cows with low immunity, also paves the way for other diseases to spread. Cows die due to this.
There are no treatment options
There is no cure for this disease and no vaccine. Treatment is given only according to the symptoms. Early symptoms are skin rash and high fever and runny nose. Therefore, cow breeders should monitor these symptoms. “We are running veterinary camps in rural areas,” said the veterinary department. It is said that the spread of the disease will also have a heavy economic impact on those involved in the sector.
Study of disease
5-10 percent of total cows may be affected by this disease. It is even more shocking that the livestock department officials say that the actual situation is more than the reported death of 254 cows in the last 2 weeks. Veterinarians went to Jodhpur, an area where the spread of this disease is most prevalent, and explained the disease prevention method there. Union Minister of State for Agriculture Kailash Chowdhury said that a team of scientists from the Indian Agricultural Research Institute has been sent to study the disease that is spreading among cows in western Rajasthan.
Farmers are greatly affected
Kailash Chowdhury posted on his Twitter account that the central government will take necessary steps as per the advice of scientists. Minister Kailash Chowdhury said that this skin disease is the reason for the death of a large number of cows in Rajasthan and said that due to this, the farmers have suffered a lot.
