Apr 07, Colombo: The ban on cattle slaughter in Sri Lanka's Eastern Trincomalee District has been lifted with effect from April 1st, according to local media reports.

Cattle slaughter was banned in the district following the outbreak of hoof and mouth disease.

The ban on slaughtering cattle came into effect from February 19th following a gazette notification by Provincial Animal Husbandry and Production Ministry of the Eastern Provincial Council.

The ban has however been lifted now since no new cases had been reported by the veterinary surgeons in the area.

Following the lifting of the ban, cattle slaughter has reportedly commenced in nine of the 11 Divisional Secretarial divisions.
