Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Thursday ordered the allocation of Rs 25.88 crore for three projects — improvement of the livestock semen station in Ooty, upgradation of 100 rural veterinary sub-centres into full-fledged rural veterinary dispensaries and the setting up of 250 shops to increase availability of dry fodder.

A government press release here said she had ordered the allocation of Rs 6.45 crore for the upgradation of infrastructure at the livestock semen station in Ooty in order to improve the quality and pedigree of frozen semen to promote high-yield milch cattle varieties.

She ordered the setting up of 250 shops across the State with a mandate to ensure the supply of sufficient dry fodder for livestock. The shops will be set up at a cost of Rs 5 lakh each and the total fund allocation would be Rs 12.5 crore.

Jayalalithaa further approved the allocation of Rs 6.93 crore for the improvement of veterinary services in rural areas.

This allocation is set to be used to upgrade 100 rural veterinary sub-centres into full-fledged rural veterinary dispensaries. This move is aimed at improving accessibility to veterinary care for livestock to end users in rural areas.
