New Courses to promote Entrepreneurship in Animal Husbandry

To promote entrepreneurship in animal husbandry sector, the Veterinary University Training and Research Centre ( VUTRC ), affiliated to Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University ( TANUVAS ), is set to commence certificate courses in ‘poultry farming’ and ‘country fowl rearing’ soon for unemployed youth / farmers.

R. Selvaraj, professor and head, VUTRC, told press persons that the certificate courses would be conducted in batches with the training on poultry farming aimed at helping youth to become supervisors in poultry farms or to start their own farms where the knowledge imbibed from attending the classes could come in handy.

“The duration of the certificate course will be 45 days and those who have passed Secondary School Leaving Certificate and remaining unemployed can get themselves enrolled,” he said.

The certificate course on country fowl rearing would be of 30 days duration and any unemployed youth / farmer could join the course of study.

Field Experience

According to Dr. Selvaraj, the certificate course materials have been developed in such a manner that the trainees could get adequate field experience.

“We will take them for practical classes in progressive farms for four days in a week with just two days allocated for theory classes,” he said.

The programmes would be covering topics like feeding, management of farms, importance of vaccinations against Ranikhet and infectious bursal diseases, and storage of feeds, among others.

Dr. Selvaraj pointed out that attending the certificate course on country fowl rearing would be of great benefit to unemployed youth as the demand for ‘desi bird’ is showing an upward trend.

“Meat of country fowls contains greater percentage of Omega 3 fatty acids than in the broiler chickens, which is good for human health,” he said.
