The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change and Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries have organized a day-long national conference on ‘Gaushalas’ (cowsheds) in New Delhi. Speaking on the occasion, Minister of State (Independent Charge) of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Shri Prakash Javadekar said that the technical sessions will discuss three issues – (i) how to increase the milk productivity of Indian cows, (ii) Making provision for feed, fodder and ancillary requirements for Indian cows and (iii) Management of cows in the post-productive phase.
The Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar has also hinted on a yojna in near future under which farmers will be provided fodder free of cost for animal grazing. He also shared concern on smuggling of animals. He said that the animal welfare board has been directed to give detailed report on such incidents in two months time.
