Distribute sheep units as monsoon sets in: Talasani

Animal Husbandry Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav today said “Sheep Rearing” scheme will be launched to boost the economy of Yadavas in the State and will start distribute sheep among the beneficiaries as soon as monsoon sets in.


The Minister held a review meeting with the officials concerned at Secretariat here and took stock of the situation and preparedness for implementing the much-awaited scheme. Since the Monsoon is to set in a couple of days, the Sheep units will be distributed among the beneficiaries, he said. There was no need of doubt or panic among Yadavas about the availability of the sheep ought to be distributed. The process of identifying the beneficiaries has been completed and 50 per cent of sheep will be distributed this time across the State. He asked the district officials, Collectors, revenue and other wings to get ready to take up the program in a successful manner.

As the sheep rearing scheme is the brainchild of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, it was given top priority, he remarked. Grass for the sheep will be grown at selected forest and farm lands in districts. He also said 100 mobile veterinary vehicles with doctors and staff will be operational to offer timely health services to the sheep at the fields. (NSS)
