Animal Husbandry Department to Provide High-Quality Veterinary Care | Thiruvananthapuram News
The proposal was announced by Livestock Minister J Chinchurani during the inauguration of the Emergency Veterinary Care Unit set up by the Trivandrum Regional Cooperative Milk Producers Union (TRCMPU) at Thottakkad Milk Co-operative Society in the district.
She said the emergency veterinary care project will ensure high quality veterinary care for livestock owned by dairy farmers affiliated with dairy cooperatives in the region.
The government aims to provide high quality veterinary care at minimum cost to dairy farmers as part of a series of initiatives to improve the productivity of the dairy sector, she said.
While praising the initiatives of the TRCMPU, Chinchurani also highlighted the need to enhance synergy between government agencies, dairy cooperative societies and regional milk producer unions.
In most states, these agencies work together to provide veterinary care and other services to dairy farmers, she said.
All the activities of the TRCMPU, in particular the project to promote veterinary care, have been moving in this direction since the creation of the current administrative committee, she said.
