Animal Husbandry Training Centre

The Animal Husbandry Department has a State Level Training Centre in Pune which runs short term training courses for Livestock Development Officers and Livestock Supervisors. This Training Centre is in need of training material and equipment for running effective courses. The courses to be run in this center would also need to be refocused with market-led extension concept as envisaged in the project. Five hundred Livestock development Officers and Live Stock Supervisors from the catchments area of selected 20 LSM and 4 SRM in MACP will be trained in this institute for marketing management, disease management etc. 3-5 days course will be conducted. It will be beneficial to motivate and train cattle owners within catchment zone. It will reflect in the increased number of cattle owners taking benefit of developed LSM and SRM under MACP. This will be a strong backward linkage for the development of LSM and SRM component.

Sensitization workshops:
Although the ATMA model of agricultural extension was introduced in the state in 1998, the spirit, objectives and methodology of functioning of ATMA are not fully understood by all line departments. Better awareness and understanding of ATMA model of extension is required at state, regional and district level. The heads, regional heads and district level officers of line departments would therefore need to be exposed and oriented in this approach of extension system. The state level one day workshops for state and regional level officers would be organized. This would help bring about integration in interdepartmental working and facilitate clear guidance from the state and regional level officers to district level officers. The Commissioner of Agriculture would organize State level workshops while district level workshops will be organized by P.D. of respective ATMAs. This will also facilitate appreciation of the MACP and the strategy for implementing market-led extension through the ATMAs.

Documentation of success stories and special studies:
It is envisaged that the implementation of MACP would generate a number of success stories across the project area involving all Line Departments. The typical success stories need to be replicated to enhance the success of project. This would prove as a stimulus for the ordinary farmers to undertake enterprising activity in different spheres of development. Print and electronic media would need to be tapped to disseminate the success stories to as large a number of farmers as possible.
