Kerala animal husbandry department to provide high quality veterinary care

February 26, 2022

Thiruvananthapuram: The animal husbandry department will soon work with the regional milk co-operative unions of Milma to provide high quality veterinary care for livestock in the state.

The proposal was announced by animal husbandry minister J Chinchurani while inaugurating the emergency veterinary care unit set up by Trivandrum Regional Co-operative Milk Producers Union (TRCMPU) at Thottakkad Milk Co-operative Society in the district.

She said the emergency veterinary care project will assure high quality veterinary care for cattle owned by the dairy farmers affiliated to milk co-operatives in the region.

The government is aimed at providing high quality veterinary care at the minimum cost to the dairy farmers as part of a series of initiatives to enhance productivity of the dairy sector, she said.

While lauding the TRCMPU’s initiatives, Chinchurani also pointed out the need for strengthening the synergy among government agencies, milk co-operative societies and regional milk producers unions.

In most states these agencies work together to deliver veterinary care and other services to the dairy farmers, she said.

All the activities of TRCMPU, especially the project to enhance veterinary care, have been moving in this direction ever since the present administrative committee came into existence, she said.
