Emergency feed for livestock
is being stored in strategic locations around Mongolia to be used in
the event of snow preventing animals from being fed this winter.
The program is being instituted
by Minister of Food and Agriculture Ts.Gankhuyag. Orders involve stocking
three days of livestock feed in grazing areas where animals have been
caught during blizzards.
The ministry has ordered governors
of aimags and heads of the departments of food and agriculture to stock
livestock feed for emergency use this winter. The program is being run
in conjunction with Mongolia’s food campaign, "Hay and Fodder-2008."
