Animal Husbandry

The development of animal husbandry has been envisaged as integral part of diversified agricultural system. Animal husbandry contributes substantially to nation’s income. Animal husbandry is also a traditional means of livelihood in hills areas. There has been significant improvement in animal health coverage and rising consciousness towards animal care. Preventive measures such as vaccination against dreaded diseases have significantly reduced the morbidity, mortality, and thereby making live stock remunerative venture.
