Livestock Alert

Almost 300 thousand head of cattle in Puno and more than 75 thousand in Apurímac will receive attention from the Agro Rural program (of the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation), as part of the plan to counteract the frosts that hit several regions of the southern highlands.

The care consists of the delivery of kits of medicines and supplements for animals, in order to reduce morbidity and mortality rates in cattle and camelids in South America.

According to the recent reports of the National Institute of Civil Defense (Indeci), 29,896 livestock have been lost and 2,200,000 have been affected in high areas. Only in the Puno region have died more than 12 thousand animals in recent weeks due to frost .

So far there are more than 407 thousand people affected, according to statistics from Indeci.
