Mumbai: Maharashtra’s Animal Husbandry, Dairy Development and Fisheries Minister Mahadev Jankar has said that the state government is doing a lot of efforts to improve the breed of cows and buffaloes and in the coming days high quality of cows, giving more quantity of milk, will be provided to farmers belonging to dairy business.
The Bhumi Pujan of the Cattle Farming Complex in Tathawade (Taluka Mulshi, District Pune) was performed from the fund sanctioned under ‘National Gokul Mission’ today. In his address on this occasion, he informed the decision of the state government. Former MLA Sharad Dhamale, Animal Husbandry Commissioner Kantilal Umap, Additional Commissioner D.M. Chavan and Manager of Tathawade Farm Mr. Vidhate were present on the occasion.
Under the National Gokul Mission, a cattle house with capacity to accommodate 600 animals will be constructed in Cattle Farm in Tathawade. For this, the amount of Rs. 2 crore 46 lakh has been sanctioned. Now after completion of the work 95 high breed buffaloes will be brought. After animal breeding period, more animals will be taken in this cattle farm. There is a proposal to transfer army cows to this cows shelter. This cattle farm will be built in a very modern style and it will be fully developed by a technical method.
The cattle farm is outlined with technical advice from the Government Engineering College (CEO), Pune, for the construction. A modern machine is being added from the tractor to provide fodder to the animals at this place. In this machine, arrangements are made to give green fodder, soft fodder and animal feed to the proper amount. Apart from this, cattle dung will be picked up by tractor driven equipment. Separate rooms have been arranged for milk duck and the milk will be removed with the help of machine.
Sprinklers, ie spraying, will be arranged to wash cows and buffaloes. Automatic water supply system will also be prepared for supply. Instead of tying animals, their free transmission method will be adopted. Free communication system will be adopted. The milk produced here will be of good quality and well-being and will be sold directly to the consumers. Out of this, the scheme has been planned for the expenditure incurred in the maintenance of the field.
Research will also be done to preserve animals in Tathawade and improve their genealogy. They will be procured to improve the family line of native cows like Khilaar, Dangi, Devani, as well as the cows giving more milk like Gir and Sahiwal or other high breed animals. To improve the family line of these cows and buffaloes, these modern technologies will be supported by Louis Surrogacy and IVF. This information was given by the administrator of the farm Mr. Vidhate.
