About a hundred farmers from the Malesevo region blocked the regional roads to Stip and Delcevo.

Tractor and vehicle barricades were set up near the villages of Macevo and Smojmirovo. This way farmers expressed their revolt against the institutions regarding the lumpy skin disease and the protection of the healthy cattle.

Farmers demand the healthy cattle to not be destroyed, and implementation of preventive measures such as vaccination and aerial mosquito spraying, because, as they said, they are suffering great damage.

Blockades on the regional roads on Monday will last until 4:00 pm.

According to estimations, around 50 herds of cattle have been destroyed in the Malesevo region, and around 20 in Delcevo.
