BAHA announces guidelines for cattle slaughtering
Strict guidelines for the slaughtering of cattle have been announced by the Belize Agricultural Health Authority.
A statement issued by BAHA today advises owners of slaughtering facilities and the general public that only cattle with Belize’s official ear tags are allowed to be slaughtered in the Corozal, Orange Walk, Belize and Cayo district.
The official statement says that the reason for the restriction to only properly tagged cattle for slaughter is “in an effort to maintain the country free of bovine tuberculosis, brucellosis and maintain the integrity of a traceability system.”
The BAHA advisory asks owners of slaughtering facilities to return the ear tags of animals they slaughter to the Belize Livestock Producers Association or to BAHA offices in the respective districts which fall under the advisory.
The official release ends by saying that the same restriction for the slaughtering of cattle will be implemented in the southern districts as soon as the testing and sampling of cattle is carried out by the Belize National Sanitary Cattle Plan Project.
