Animals Fiji held its first seminar with farmers, agriculture officers, livestock owners and the general public in Labasa earlier this week .

Animals Fiji Savusavu Clinic veterinarian Dr Jeffrey Allen, who was the speaker, said the seminar and other activities organised by Animals Fiji were an endeavour to make affordable veterinary services accessible to more communities in Fiji.

“Despite setbacks and damage sustained due to Tropical Cyclone Winston and the floods from tropical depressions this month, the organisation has endured and carried out extensive aid, relief and further emergency response services for many of the animals and the people affected by the natural disasters,” Dr Allen said.

The seminar, which was held in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture: Animal Health and Production Unit, aimed at discussing some of the major challenges faced by farmers and livestock owners including drought preparation, breeding, nutrition, welfare and post-Cyclone Winston advise on animal safety and care.
