The state of Jammu & Kashmir is an agrarian state and about 80% of Population is associated with livestock farming. This sector plays an important role in socioeconomic upliftment of rural community. This manual has been prepared by the Principle Investigator NRDMS/DST- Project with the support of senior Faculty members. It will be used as a tool of interventional strategies for prevention and control of parasitic zoonoses of livestock and their rearers belonging to socio-economically poor communities by importing knowledge through training of field veterinarians. It will be useful as a conceptual guide as well as reference material for trainers. Moreover, some part of it could be used as reading material for participants. The various aspects of livestock farming, management, disease diagnoses and prevention and control measures have been included into the training manual. Livestock rearing are popular because of the prolificacy, less investment and minimal skills that are needed for success. In addition, state is an agrarian and livestock farming play an important role in livelihood of rural people. However, the present manual focuses on some modern technological aspects of disease diagnoses, measures for prevention and control, care and management of livestock for enhancing the productivity.
Simple changed in care and management of livestock can significantly improve production and living conditions of many rural families in terms of enhanced nutrition and income generation through the sale of animal and their products. Improved animal production, early disease diagnoses, adoption of simple measures for care and management are therefore a low-cost and important aspect of rural development.
This manual aims to provide, for Veterinary Doctors, modern practices on the production of dairy animal, sheep and goat farming to know how productivity can be improved by introducing appropriate, low-cost approaches. The manual describes the steps that can be taken to improve health of animals and reduce the mortality. More costly techniques such as supplementary feeding, intensive rearing are also covered in this manual. This information could be used for planning, implementing and monitoring livestock programme. It is expected that service providers will educate the farmers about the extra costs and labour that would be required for more intensive livestock farming
