Distribution of  Temporary night shelters under Scheduled caste Sub Plan

Rural poultry production with low input technology has found special interest among the rural people because of its simplicity of operation, need for minimum resources and ability to provide supplementary income in the shortest possible time. In this regard, ICAR-Directorate of Poultry Research, Hyderabad introduced rural/ backyard chicken farming with improved chicken varieties with an aim to improve the income and living standards of SC farmers under Scheduled caste SubPlan (SCSP). Under the plan, SC families were given training on “Backyard poultry farming” at ICAR-DPR, Hyderabad and were provided with 18-20 Vanaraja birds (5-6 weeks of age), 20-25 kg feed, one feeder and one drinker for each beneficiary. To further improve backyard poultry farming and to safe guard the birds from predatory attacks and different climatic conditions during night time, Temporary night shelters were designed and made by ICAR-DPR.  Two input training programmes were organized and 35 temporary night shelters were distributed to the SC beneficiaries at Shambunipet village, Warangal district on 15th February 2020 and 40 Temporary night shelters at Thimmampet village, Warangal district on 19th February, 2020, respectively. During the programme, Scientists also interacted with the farmers and visited the households and provided inputs for better feeding and health management of the birds.
