A total of 62 students, researchers and professionals from across India enrolled in the Youth Skills Training Course for Scientific Livestock Husbandry organized by GADVASU, Ludhiana

Extension Education Directorate, Guru Angad Dev University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (GADVASU) and National Institute of Agricultural Extension Management (MANAGE), Hyderabad, organized a collaborative online training program on the transmission of skills to young people for the scientific breeding of livestock.

The program was organized for extension officers from state departments of animal husbandry, scientists and specialists from ICAR institutes and state agricultural/veterinary universities.

A total of 62 students, researchers and professionals from all over India have registered for the course. Experts from different departments of the university gave lectures to educate participants on the different skills needed to start a successful business in dairy farming, goat farming, pig farming, added value and animal nutrition.

Dr Parkash Singh Brar, director of extension education, said livestock-based businesses can be very helpful in generating self-employment opportunities for rural youth. The veterinary college is working closely with all stakeholders to promote animal husbandry in Punjab, he added.

Dr. Brar interacted with attendees and shared the university’s approach to promoting animal husbandry in the state. The university supports a pluralistic extension model to reach farmers across the state, he said.
