'Research on livestock professions should be focused on state's requirements'
Cabinet minister for animal husbandry, dairy development and fisheries Guljar Singh Ranike said that research on livestock professions should be focused on requirements and constraints of the state.
Ranike said this during the inaugural address of a workshop held for animal husbandry officers of the state organised by Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU) here, where he was the chief guest.
"Both animal husbandry department and GADVASU should come forward to conduct a joint research. New pass outs of veterinary sciences should be equipped with modern and scientific knowhow of the profession," the minister said.
Chief parliamentary secretary (animal husbandry), Des Raj Dhugga, was the guest of honour. He said that optimum use of resources was the need of the hour.
Vice-chancellor GADVASU, VK Taneja, said the development of livestock professions in a scientific manner also highlighted new problems being faced in the area of diseases, treatment, housing, production and research.
He said value addition was the tested mantra for more profitability.
