Government Pays for Hay and Straw For Cattle Farmers

In light of the fire that has plagued Ponta do Pargo since Monday, destroying vast areas of cattle pasture, the Regional Secretary for Agriculture and Rural Development, Humberto Vasconcelos has said that the government will pay the cost of hay and straw for the next six months. A measure that was welcomed by the seventy-two cattle farmers registered in the area.

During the visit, Humberto Vasconcelos accompanied by Mayor Carlos Teles assured farmers that the Government is already contacting suppliers to ensure the immediate delivery of five tons of food for the 321 animals concerned.
