The biggest challenge was to successfully implement the plan to renovate the dilapidated breeding centre, but due to the coordination of all the officials of the department, the breeding center has now emerged in a new form. We were thinking of its salvation for a long time.
With the opening of this breeding centre, you will start seeing results in the next three months and it will become a model breeding centre. During this, he also visited the Milk Supply cum Cow Farm located at Hotwar in Ranchi where he inaugurated the cutter unit and vermicompost unit.
This is an important step towards making the state selfreliant in politics. Under the instructions of the Honorable Chief Minister and the leadership of the Minister, there is a hatchery unit with 90 thousand capacity which will start by March. Today 2 thousand ducks have been kept here, soon 10 thousand ducks will be kept here, 10 thousand duck eggs and 80-90 thousand chicken eggs can be produced daily.
Besides this, meat can also be produced.This center will become a big exposure for the state. The Agriculture Animal Husbandry Department has set an example in the milk supply cum cattle sector located at Hotwar in the capital Ranchi. That too within just four months.
The Animal Husbandry Department has 160 milch buffaloes in Hotwar, which used to produce only 30 liters of milk four months ago, but due to the department’s active activities, today 280 liters of milk is being produced every day. Whereas there has been no increase in the number of buffaloes.
