Belize Vaccinating Birds for Newcastle Disease

Officers from the Belize Agriculture Department have begun administering vaccines to poultry and other domesticated birds against the Newcastle disease. During the next few days, the Ministry of Agriculture will be working with farmers along Faber’s Road Extension. Love News spoke with Miguel Balan, the acting agriculture officer for the Belize District about what local farmers can expect and how they can be prepared.
