Sofia. The protesting farmers’ demand for BGN 20 de minimis implies BGN 25 million, which the ministry does not have, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Forestry Rumen Porozhanov told reporters in Parliament, Focus News Agency reports. He said the demand was not realistic, considering the market prices. “We held a two-hour discussion on their demands. We made concessions on de minimis, as well as calculations to see what reserves we can allocate from the ministry’s budget,” Porozhanov said. “From BGN 5 de minimis per sheep for the whole country, yesterday we revised the decision to BGN 7. This represents BGN 8.5 million,” he said.

Teams of Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry to visit areas affected by sheep and goat plague in Yambol and Burgas regions

Sofia. Today, teams of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry will visit the areas affected by Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) in the regions of Yambol and Burgas, said the ministry. They will meet with farmers to discuss how they can seek compensation for damages as a result of disease mitigation measures. On 5 July, a meeting with the organisations of sheep and goat breeders will take place at the ministry.
The disease, also known as ovine rinderpest or sheep and goat plague, is not dangerous to humans but can cause serious economic losses because of its high mortality rates and restrictions on trade and transport of animals and products from the affected areas. Farmers are urged immediately to report suspected cases to the regional directorates of the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency.
