Ulaanbaatar, April 1, 2019 (Xinhua) – The National Emergency Management Agency of Mongolia announced today, Monday (April 1). Farm animal deaths in Mongolia are expected to increase amid extreme weather conditions now that at least 5.9 million farm animals, or 9.2% of Mongolia's livestock, have died due to extreme cold this winter.

Incidentally, “sud” is a Mongolian word used to describe the harsh winter that led to the death of many livestock. Because the ground is frozen or covered with snow

The agency said that more than 40 percent of Mongolia's population was in dire straits last summer. Almost every county in the country has seen “blacks.”

Encouraging livestock is the most likely way to diversify the economy of Mongolia, a landlocked country that relies heavily on mining.
