First Trials Runs of Rustavi and Marneuli Bio Security Points
Djakhangir Abasov, 2500 sheep owner from Sagarejo municipality: “It is very good and almost unbelievable that we’ll bath our ship and cattle for free. We were paying to private owners 0.5 Tetri per sheep which is 100-150 GEL for a flock plus money for the chemicals”.
Gedevan Abesadze, 2000 sheep owner from Sagarejo municipality: “I’ve just seen this Bio Security point and liked it, good work”.
Vano Bluishvili, 500 sheep owner from Gardabani municipality: “I’ve bathed my flock on Rustavi Bio Security Point. It is the first time when the National Food Agency took over the reins and I’m sure they will improve this process step by step”.
