Cattle are precious asset of the farmers and any negligence in animal’s care can cause losses to farmers.
This was stated by Deputy Director Livestock (jalapur pirwala) Dr Jamshaid Akhtar while talking to farmers during a session related to “Farmers Day”.

The improper care can put lives of animals in danger, he noted.
The pregnant and lactating animals should be given 100 grams of “Gurr” per day, he suggested. Both, the feed and animals should be exposed to direct sunlight as sun bath is vital for maintaining health.
The animals should be feeded, dried and green, mixed fodder. Wanda and mineral should also be given as these provide immunity to animals.
