About National Animal Disease Control Programme (NADCP) has been launched for eradicating foot and mouth disease and brucellosis in livestock. It aims to control livestock diseases by 2025 and eradicate these by 2030. It aims at vaccinating over 500 million livestock including cattle, buffalo, sheep, goats and pigs against the FMD. It also aims at vaccinating 36 million female bovine calves annually in its fight against brucellosis disease. Funding: It is a 100% centrally funded programme for a period from 2019 to 2024. Need: Farmer’s Income: Animal Husbandry and other allied activities have a greater role to play in increasing farmers’ income. Affects Productivity: Animal diseases impact livestock production through direct costs and indirect costs. In the case of Brucellosis, the milk output reduces by 30 per cent during the entire life cycle of animals and also causes infertility among the animals. Trade: Brucellosis and FMD disease are common among cattle, buffalo, sheep, goats and pigs and it has a direct negative impact on trade of milk and other livestock products. Affects Humans: The infections can also be transmitted to farmworkers and livestock owners. National Artificial Insemination Programme: The Prime Minister also launched the National Artificial Insemination Programme in all the KrishiVIgyanKendras(KVKs). It is launched across the country for vaccination and disease management, Artificial Insemination and Productivity. Previous Livestock Extension services failed: The trained rural youth were responsible to cater only to 8-15 villages often focused on treatment, mostly on large livestock, rather than preventive practices and awareness building. The trained youth who were men most of the time had a social and psychological barrier in reaching women, who are the caretakers of livestock. High travel costs resulted in neglect of close monitoring and administering first aid. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
