Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University Launch Poultry Scheme

The newly – formed Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University ( KVASU ) will launch some of its new and key concepts at the Haritosavam, which will get going at Maradu on September 3, 2011 .

Addressing the media here, S. Ramkumar, Director of Entrepreneurship, KVASU, said that Union Minister of State for Food and Civil Supplies K.V. Thomas will inaugurate the Akshaya poultry scheme at Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University.

The scheme includes distribution of highly productive strain of ‘Athulya hen’ along with a specially designed coop and feed. The coop has been so designed so that families in urban areas can keep up to five chickens at a time and it is expected that 1,500 eggs would be produced in a year from one such single unit, Dr. Ramkumar said.

This scheme was developed in response to the food security drive and as part of attempts to ensure adequate egg and meat supply to the State. The coop developed at the university has provisions for collecting the droppings of the chicken and used as manure, making it ideal for closed living spaces as in apartments, he said.

Chief Minister Oommen Chandy will release the book “ Kozhivalarthal Muttathum Mattupavilum”, meant for those interested in poultry farming, at the venue on September 3, 2011 Saturday. Minister for Agriculture K.P. Mohanan will release the KVASU’s newletter ‘Windows’. Minister for Food and Civil Supplies T.M.
