A total of 28 members of the Soe community were trained in livestock management to increase knowledge of basic animal health treatments for wounds, fractures, and abscesses; to increase understanding of pasture development, feeding management, and breed improvement; and, more importantly, to increase understanding of the prevention and cure of gid disease. This training is the third in a series for the Soe community members, in addition to awareness campaigns on gid disease. The training was led by the livestock officer of Soe village, Namgay, in partnership with the Department of Livestock under the Ministry of Agriculture and Forests.
