Call to enhance livestock related services to growers

RAJSHAHI, July 13 (BSS): Speakers at a discussion here on Wednesday urged the service providers to reach the livestock related necessary services to the grassroots growers for boosting the animal resources, particularly livestock and poultry.

They viewed more importance should be given on extending the requisite services like primary treatment, vaccination and farm management so that the farmers are benefited.

The speakers were addressing a daylong training workshop for service providers titled "Capacity Building and Service Market Assessment" at a hotel here.

Practical Action Bangladesh (PAB) and Caritas Bangladesh ,two non-government organizations, jointly organized the workshop in association with Climate Resilient Agriculture Project.

PAB Project Coordinator Mojaharul Islam, President of Kakonhat Fisheries and Livestock Development Society Habibur Rahman and its General Secretary Rahman Habib and Organzing Secretary Mozammel Haque conducted the training sessions as focal persons.

Service Providers Rakibuzzaman, Shefali Begum, Rafiqul Islam and Lipi Khatun also spoke.

The speakers stressed the need for uplifting the livestock sector for food security, self-employment and poverty reduction. They also called for due importance on adopting modern technology, promotion of high yielding varieties and farmers training to overcome the crisis.

Animal resources could be developed through strengthening the economic management. Information, specialised knowledge and research are needed. All concerned should come forward for flourishing the poultry and animal resource sector.

Contribution of the livestock sector is immense in terms of meeting up the protein deficiency and socio economic development and said there is no alternative to elevate the sector.

Besides, large-scale farming of fodder could further develop the livestock sector to contribute immensely in fulfilling the protein deficiency in the country.
