Ludhiana | Goat welfare camp organized by GADVASU under Farmer FIRST project in Dhaner village

The Goat Welfare Camp was organized under the leadership of PS Brar, Extension Education Manager, GADVASU, Ludhiana, and Farmer FIRST Project Nodal Officer

Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Science University (GADVASU) organized Goat Welfare Camp in Dhaner Village, Barnala for goat herders in the operational area of ​​the ICAR-funded Farmer FIRST project .

The camp was organized under the leadership of PS Brar, Director of Extension Education and Nodal Officer of the Farmer FIRST Project.

A total of 17 beneficiary goat herders from Dhaner, Moom and Channanwal villages visited the camp site, along with 101 heads of goats and 40 heads of sheep. These animals were given oral deworming medication free of charge.

Due to the low economic status of the farmers, the animals remain infested with different types of parasites which often lead to diarrhoea, emaciation, weight loss, pica and even mortality.

To avoid such losses, the animals needed prompt treatment. During the camp, the farmers also discussed multiple issues related to goat health with the expert. Dr. Rajesh Kasrija briefed them on good management practices to avoid health problems in goats.

The farmers have been informed that such welfare camps will be organized regularly in the future in the farming areas.

Other farmers in the area have been advised to contact the university experts via dedicated mobile numbers: 62832-97919 and 62832-58834 every working day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
