Breed Of Animal Farmers Is Slowly Emerging In The State

GOA : A new breed of animal farmers is slowly emerging in the state. Officers at the department of animal husbandry and veterinary services (AHVS) spent weeks visiting panchayats to popularise their schemes for piggery, poultry, goat and cattle rearing among those looking for an alternative means of income during the lockdown.Among those availing of the scheme are seafarers who have returned to Goa owing to the pandemic. “There are also graduates and engineers who have lost their jobs during the pandemic who have taken this up. We are currently training 30 such people in dairy and piggery farming,” director of AHVS, Dr Santosh Desai said.

Desai said that roughly calculated figures indicate that the demand for poultry and goat farming has doubled compared to the previous financial year. So far, 174 poultry units have been sanctioned since the lockdown and another 100 are to be disbursed next month. For goat rearing, AHVS has received 40 applications so far, which shall be granted after the officers approve them.“We have received good feedback. Hundreds have expressed interest in cattle farming and poultry. We are compiling the total figures so that we can grant them the schemes by end of March 2021,” Desai said.
