Mysterious disease kills 36 buffaloes

Hisar, July 22

A mysterious disease has resulted in the death of 36 buffaloes in three days at a dairy farm in Nangthala village of the district.

A team of Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (LUVAS), led by Dr Naresh Jindal, visited the dairy and took two carcasses for the postmortem examination and took samples of the ailing animals. Dairy owner Ranvir Singh has about 110 buffaloes.

Dr Jindal said the report of postmortem and other examinations would be ready by tonight. He said the treatment of ailing animals had been started and the dairy owner had been advised to change the feed. “I got information that the condition of the buffaloes is improving today,” he said while ruling out the outbreak of foot and mouth disease (FMD).

Meanwhile, Haryana Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Anoop Dhanak, has also issued directions to the district administration to find out the reason behind the deaths.

The minister spoke to Deputy Commissioner Priyanka Soni and directed animal husbandry officials to treat other cattle of the affected man.

The minister said Rajendra Vats, Deputy Director, Animal Husbandry, had also visited the animals at the dairy with the veterinarians, who are engaged in treating animals round the clock.

Dr Rajendra Vats said three eight-hour shifts had been set by the department. Each team consists of two veterinary surgeons and three assistants. He said the postmortem report would reveal the reason behind the deaths. — TNS
