GARUT. In addition to work as a nurse in a regional hospital, Yusep or kang Iyus is also employed as a health supervisor of members’ livestock who are joined in RZ Farmer Community in Garut.
Yesterday (29/4), Iyus visited a member named Dian to check some sheep indicated experiencing weight loss due to indeterminate weather.
“Previously, I visited Jamaludin and I saw that his sheep are in good condition whereas I found that one of sheep here experiencing weight loss. I need to give B vitamin,” He said.
Iyus added that all B vitamins are water soluble; a healthy goat manufactures its own B vitamins daily in its rumen. The goat uses what it needs each day and excretes the rest from its body. It does not store B vitamins in its body. Two of the B vitamins that are extremely important to goat health are Vitamin B 1 (thiamine) and Vitamin B12. ***
