“That is why we introduced the ‘branding’ method to reduce the risk of theft.

“If someone sells livestock that has other branding, we can check whether the animal was purchased or previously lost,” said Dr Akma to Selangor Kini.

Therefore, he advised breeders to register their brands to the DVS.

He added that compared to abroad, registering the branding is currently free.

He expected the branding registration to be charged if this measure is enforces in Acts related to livestock in the future.
