    Dont blame vets. They don't produce the vaccines. Blame the state owned OPB who has stolen and failed to use just under R1B tp upgrafe the facilities, which was granted nearly 10 years ago.

    There was a gentleman from the red meat producers organization on ENCA explaining how the lack of vaccine is affecting farmers and is creating a red meat shortage.

    African Horse sickness and horse flu vaccines are also a problem. It seems the entire system has collapsed.

    It sounds like they are waiting for private sector vaccine manufacturers to get licensed so that vaccines can be made for OP. I'm not sure about snake anti-venom tho.
