January 7, 2013
LAHORE: University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Talat Naseer Pasha has called for addressing the problems of small ruminants which they are facing in the areas of breeding, health, feeding, management and marketing.
The Vice-Chancellor said this in a meeting with a delegation of International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD) led by Mission Leader Ms. Maleha Hussain here Monday. The meeting discussed the application of modern farming practices particularly for small ruminants in the remote areas of Leyyah, Bhakhar, Khushab and Mianwali districts on public-private partnership basis. The meeting participants agreed to launch a project to uplift the small holders and promote sheep and goat farming.
The Vice-Chancellor said that the university had earned Rs 25 million by producing combined oil-based HS and FMD vaccine for the province of Sindh. He said that a hefty amount was being spent in the import of PPR vaccine, which could be saved by producing the same indigenously. He said that abortions were being reported in large scale in sheep and goat due to deficiency of iodine, which should be addressed at various levels.
Ms. Maleha Hussain said that the IFAD wanted to contribute to improving the dairy and meat potential of indigenous breeds. For the purpose, she said, the IFAD wanted sustainable linkages with the UVAS.
