By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA) will be updating the Belize Livestock Producers Association (BLPA), at its Annual General Meeting (AGM), on the New World screwworm outbreak in Costa Rica and the steps BAHA is taking to prevent its entrance into Belize.

The BLPA is holding it 45th AGM on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at the BLPA headquarters at Mile 47.5 on the George Price Highway.

BAHA will advise the BLPA members on the New World Screw Worm emergency declared in Costa Rica due to the re-emergence of the disease and their measures to contain its entry into Belize. BAHA has increased its surveillance measures to prevent the spread of the parasitic fly that affects livestock.

BAHA will also update the members on the new long-term protocols that are being implemented for the export of cattle to Mexico.

BAHA is a statutory body that operates under the aegis of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise.

Prime Minister John Briceño will also be addressing the BLPA AGM.
