Now in this district of Rajasthan, health cards will be made for goats too and loans will be given

Banswara : In Rajasthan’s tribal district Banswara, now goats will also get health cards. Through which they can be treated. Banswara District Collector Dr. Indrajit Singh Yadav has made an innovation and has made arrangements to treat goats, which are a major source of livelihood, through health cards. Due to which there will be no unnecessary financial burden on the farmers. These days, work is going on at a fast pace on this scheme in the tribal area. The District Collector has entrusted ‘Rajivika’ with the responsibility of carrying out this work.

The income of the families connected with the scheme will increase 300 times

According to the initial assessment, there is a plan to increase the income of the families associated with this scheme by 300 times in 3 years. Goat rearing and poultry farming give more returns than any other business. Keeping this in mind, District Collector Dr. Indrajit Singh Yadav has instructed ‘Rajivika Mission’ to implement a special project of goat rearing. The District Collector himself is monitoring its progress every week.

Goats will be treated on time
For the animal breeder who buys goats and starts goat rearing, a health card will be made for each goat. The card will store data on the goat’s vaccination, its seasonal diet, its quantity and complete upbringing. The farmer will know what the goat needs and when. After the card is made, the veterinary doctor will also be able to see the medical history of the goat. Right now the project will be started by connecting 20 to 30 goat rearing farmers.

This is the first time such a project has been done in the state

Additional Chief Executive Officer of Zila Parishad and District Project Manager of Rajivika, Kailash Baroliya, said that after collecting complete information from more than 100 goat rearers, this project has been taken up on the orders of the District Collector. On one side of the health card, information related to the diet of the goat will be mentioned and on the other side there will be all kinds of medical advice. Its monitoring will be done by the Animal Husbandry Department, Rajivika Mission and Self Help Group Operators. The district administration is working fast on the entire project. It will also be linked to banking. Animal rearers wishing to start goat rearing will have to take a loan from a government, private or cooperative bank for only 2 years. In this regard, MD of Central Cooperative Bank, Paresh Pandya said that we give interest-free loan to the farmer.

Death rate will also fall
Joint Director of Animal Husbandry Department, Dr. Vijay Singh Bhati said that if the veterinary doctor knows the medical history of the goats, then better rearing is possible. The mortality rate will also decrease. There will be good quality production. There will be 100 percent profit in breeding as well. Small goats of good breed will be available for 1500 to 2 thousand rupees. If you want to buy an adult goat, then the price can be between 15 to 20 thousand.
