Georgia stepped up its effort to keep the country’s roughly 1.2 million cattle and nearly one million sheep, goats, and pigs as healthy and productive as possible.

The Government of Georgia and FAO signed an agreement to work together in a push to halt the spread of brucellosis in the country’s livestock.

As part of the new project, FAO will help the Georgian government implement a comprehensive national strategy to tackle brucellosis. The initiatives include raising public awareness of the disease, training government personnel to reinforce surveillance and response, and assisting vaccination campaigns for livestock.

Brucellosis has become endemic in livestock across Georgia, especially in the country’s eastern region. Infected animals shed the bacteria through their milk or reproductive discharge, which in turn can contaminate communal feed, pasture and water. Left undetected or untreated, the disease can spread quickly among herds or flocks.
