Two biosafety points have opened in Georgia’s eastern region of Kakheti to make sure livestock and cattle are safe from infectious diseases.
Farmers can use the various services of the biosafety points free of charge. Veterinarians from the National Food Agency will monitor the entire process that includes special disinfection facilities, baths, water reservoirs, quarantine zones and other services.

Similar biosafety points have already been launched in the towns of Rustavi and Marneuli in the Kvemo Kartli region of Georgia.
This time new biosafety points have been added in Sighnaghi and Dedoplistskaro in Kakheti to make sure sheep, cows and other cattle are inspected, cleaned and protected from diseases according to European Union (EU) standards.

The Head of National Food Safety Zurab Chekurashvili said these modern facilities will help better protect the health of cattle, decrease the risk of infectious diseases and positively reflect on the development of the cattle-breeding industry and the country’s export potential.
