ANIMAL HUSBANDRY MANAGEMENT

Agriculture and animal husbandry are two sides of the same coin. Since ancient times, cows, bullocks, disguise, goats, sheep, camels etc. have been reared in our country, but in all of these cows have always had a special importance. In Indian culture, only cow is called mother, not buffalo or other animals? All the aspects related to the village such as agriculture, energy, village industries, health and environment were closely related to cow wealth. Cow rearing was seen from the spiritual, religious, social and economic point of view. Without animal husbandry, sustainable agriculture production is not possible in agriculture. Abhinav AHRDO has been motivating farmers to adopt animal husbandry.

Challenges

  • The use of animal energy and its byproducts is decreasing due to increased mechanization and readymade chemical fertilizers.
  • Farmers’ interest in animal husbandry is decreasing. Livestock is declining rapidly in the villages.
  • The production capacity of the land is continuously falling due to less use of bio manures in the fields.
  • The place of bullocks has been taken by iron bullocks i.e. tractors.
  • The animals that become unproductive are either abandoned by some farmers or sold to butchers.

Objectives

  • To promote animal husbandry with special focus on cow.
  • To promote importance of cow and other animals in agriculture.
  • To promote indigenous breeds of animals.
  • To make Goshalas self sustainable and profitable.
