Animal Husbandary and Veterinary

  • Introduction:

    Animal Husbandry is one of the core sectors of the district economy. It provides opportunities for poverty alleviation, development of rural economy, combating rural unemployment and abridges the increasing gap between poor rural and affluent urban society. Rearing of indigenous local breed of cows (Lakhimi) and buffaloes (Luit) for milk purpose is common practice among the farmers. But now a day, a large number of farmers have started rearing cross breed cows and Murrah buffaloes. At present 80% of the district’s milk production is from Lakhimi & Luit and rest 20% from cross breeds. In all parts of South Salmara Mankachar district, irrespective of agro- ecological system, sheep and goats are reared mostly for meat purpose. The available goat breeds are Assam Hill Goat. They are well adopted in low input management system and adverse climatic conditions of the district.  Sheep, goats and Poultry are mostly reared in backyard system.

    The Animal Husbandry department came into existence from 1905. The department undertakes many activities related to scientific rearing of domestic animals, disease control and prevention of infectious diseases of livestock and poultry.
