Dairy farms to combat dengue fever

MEMBERS of the Fiji Cooperative Dairy Company Limited have organised a campaign to control the spread of dengue fever.

All of the 256 members are involved in the anti-mosquito campaign, which will involve the spraying of sheds, compounds and farm residences over four days, according to company chief executive officer Sachida Nand.

"We all have to do our part to stamp out dengue, for it not only affects those in the urban centres but most certainly in the rural countryside," he said.

"This is a four-day operation."

Mr Nand said the campaign was a result of the company's corporate social responsibility policy, as well as its commitment to the wellbeing of dairy farmers.
