More than 60,000 livestock have died from hunger and cold in Mongolia's western provinces this winter, local media said Monday.

The temperature in some western provinces last week once dropped to 34 degrees centigrade below zero and now the land is still covered by thick snow. In the Hovd Province alone, about 15,000 livestock died from the bitter chill, the report said.

The Mongolian government has begun to help provide herders in the disaster-hit areas with cheaper fodder grass.

Stock raising, one of Mongolia's key industries, has developed smoothly in recent years but has been suffering from poor weather conditions in the country.
