Animal Husbandry

Live stock and Veterinary

The rearing of live stock is a very critical and core activity in the economic profile of the state. Although it is adopted as a subsidiary occupation by a majority of the rural population, yet it constitutes a vital activity from the stand point of the economic welfare of the farmers. However, in a bizarre anatomy, the nomadic gaudier and bakerwal population depends exclusively on sheep rearing for its livelihood. Most of the stock is local and inferior in quality. Various steps are being taken to improve the quality and quantity of live stock.

The source of live stock data is the live stock census. It may, however, be pointed out that bulk of our live stock population is migratory and is recorded on de-facto basis. The district and tehsil wise break up, therefore, is not of much relevance and has only academic interest.
