Another difficult problem posed by the situation with the snow and frost of these days, it is the protection and nutrition of small ruminants and cattle, especially in the mountainous area of the country.
Rural highlands are almost fully isolated from the cold snap causing snow and ice; therefore it is impossible for vehicles to have access to the roads system.
So, among other things, livestock farmers are facing huge difficulties with food stocks, which are very are limited.
Farmers are forced to use their reserves very sparingly and create much warmer environments for their livestock.
For large flocks, especially those situated in the highlands of Shkodra, it is already full emergency situation for animal feeding.
Farmers are exploiting every small opportunity of the temporary improvement of the weather to bring the herds to small areas of pasture seeking the improvement of physical conditions of animals as far as food necessity is concerned./AgroWeb.org
