The exercise which is supposed to be carried out after ten years was supposed to be done last year, but due to the outbreak of corona virus pandemic it was postponed to this year.
Didan Isingoma the District Animal Husbandry Officer – Masindi explains that the exercise was supposed to kick off on 17th this month, but has been postponed till further notice.
