” My own and my neighbours’ chickens use to die a lot – mainly during the months of July and August.”

Adelaide Inácio is a farmer from Gorongosa district, Sofala province. Adelaide says that the mortality of her chickens has significantly decreased as a result of the Newcastle disease vaccination program. Her and her neighbours’ chickens use to die a lot – mainly during the months of July and August. She started the vaccination in July 2016 with 23 chickens and at present she has 58 chickens. If she could manage the problem of chicken theft, she could have many more.
