Livestock rearing is traditionally undertaken by majority of farmers to supplement their income from agriculture. However, productivity of the livestock reared by the farmers is low due to a variety of reasons. Low awareness about improved livestock rearing practices is the main constraint for low productivity, in addition to genetic makeup of the livestock.
Efforts are therefore undertaken through various projects to address these constraints through transfer of appropriate technologies and provision of quality services.
This program aims at providing services like preventive health, fodder development, technical advice; community organization; and training to local youths to acquire technical skills.
