Vice Premier Tapia holds fruitful exchange with ranchers in eastern Cuba

LAS TUNAS, Cuba, Dec 6 (ACN) When the rancher from the municipality of Las Tunas, Aldo Rodriguez Prieto, said today that in his cooperative they are very happy with the 63 measures approved by the Council of Ministers and that from now on they need to work more and more efficiently, his colleagues in the plenary session seconded him with a round of applause.

This spontaneous intervention was valued as very opportune by Jorge Luis Tapia Fonseca, Deputy Prime Minister, during an exchange with representatives of the livestock sector in the province, to get to know the concerns of cooperatives and individual producers, with the objective of clarifying doubts or seeking solutions to obstacles.

In order to develop the mass it is essential to guarantee enough food and water, and to improve genetically, however, the problems faced by the producers have not all had a happy outcome in these basic conditions, were some of the concerns at the meeting, which was also chaired by Manuel Pérez Gallego, first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba in the province, and Ydael Pérez Brito, Minister of Agriculture.

From this exchange, possible favorable changes were derived to approaches such as the delivery of land to cattle breeders who do not have that necessary patrimony, although 17 out of 35 owners have already been benefited, and the analysis continues to discount that problem, according to Yoel Martinez, delegate of Agriculture in the territory.

Regarding the availability of medicines and semen to improve the herds, it was said that if the productive bases generate income in foreign currency, it has already been approved that they can be acquired abroad, even importing pedigree animals.

The farmer Jorge Ramirez, from the municipality of Colombia, stated that he has 78 head of cattle and 26 hectares, and in his area he has difficulties that can be solved immediately, but the sector's cadres have very few links with his unit.

The lack of salt to supply the cattle was a matter of concern for Sergio Castro, also from the municipality of Colombia, which has not been answered, an issue that could be solved with the intervention of local authorities, since the Puerto Padre salt mine is located in Las Tunas, the second largest in the country, only surpassed by the one in Guantánamo.

The difficulties in some places for milk transportation due to the deterioration of the roads were also raised, a reality that needs to be faced by the Municipal Assembly of People's Power, with the inclusion in the annual budget.
