Outbreaks of Disease Among Cattle

Government has taken note of outbreaks of disease among cattle. The major diseases observed in cattle, over the last three years, are FMD, Brucellosis, Hemorrhagic Septicemia (HS), Lumpy Skin Disease (LSD). Vaccination against these diseases is covered under the Livestock Health and Disease Control programme.

Animal Husbandry is a State subject and there is no central scheme which reimburses farmers for expenses incurred by them in the course of caring for ailing cattle.

Question does not arise.

    This information was given by The Minister of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying Shri. Parshottam Rupala in the Lok Sabha in a written reply today.
