GADVASU trains dairy farmers from Madhya Pradesh

April 12

Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Ludhiana is working actively to uplift the status of livestock farmers through imparting scientific knowledge and transfer of technologies not only to the farmers of the Punjab but also to farmers of other parts of India. The views were revealed by Dr. J S Bhatti, Professor cum Head Department of Veterinary and Animal Husbandry Extension Education. He said in the continuation of the same, the Department organized two day specialized dairy farming training programme for the farmers of Madhya Pradesh in which 18 trainees were participated. The trainees were apprised with the scientific management aspects, balanced feeding, importance of mineral mixture, reproductive management, shelter management, seasonal management, calf care, first aid etc. Dr Bhatti revealed that feed play an important role in dairy farming profitability as it alone accounts for 65-70 % of the total cost incurred on the milk production. Most of the dairy farmers were dependent upon the market for purchasing the concentrate to feed their animals. They were told to give balanced feed to the animals and were encouraged to prepare their own feed as it will ensure better quality and economy. Dr R.S Sahota, Director of Extension Education, was chief guest on the concluding function. On this occasion he said that through the adoption of scientific and recommended practices it is very easy to increase the milk productivity of the animals. We cannot afford to increase the population of animals, as country is having around 16% animals of world, but we can definitely improve the performance of our animals through these recommended advanced practices in dairy farming. Dr H K Verma and Dr Udeybir Singh were the technical coordinators of this specialized training programme.
