  • Empowerment of Dairy Farmers through Mobile Advisory Services ( 872 reads)   

    Dairy farmer needs timely agro-advisory service to do better farming and good returns from their enterprise. Farmers require immediate advice on disease and other issues to avoid damage to their livestock. However, gap between farmer and extension is increasing day by day because of various constraints and limitation in the system. In order to overcome the problem of geographical limitation, ICTs Implementation plays an important role in improving the wellbeing of the dairy farmers. Mobile based SMS provides the facility of sending text message could be used to perform two-way-communication between farmer and scientists. - Category: Agriculture
  • Information and Communication Technology (ICTs) for Good Dairy Farming Practices (GDFP) ( 864 reads)   

    Information and Communication Technology (ICTs) play an important role in improving dairy farmers' production systems. By fulfilling information need of the farmers, it is possible to increase the production, profitability with the responsibility of protecting human health, animal health, animal welfare and the environment. Dairy farmers, as the primary producers in the supply chain, should also be given the opportunity to add value to their product by adopting best methods of production that satisfy the demands of processors and customers. E-extension play an important role in facilitating information needs of the farmer-producer on good dairy farming practices. - Category: Agriculture
  • Mobile Based SMS Services for Dairy Farmers ( 958 reads)   

    Agro-advisory service providers need to develop specific, appropriate, and timely content and update of information as often as necessary. Creation of help lines to provide customized solutions and enable feedback from farmers also help in sustaining technology. The information delivery must be led by demand driven rather than supply driven. However, even when all that is done, it must be remembered that merely receiving messages over the phone does not motivate farmers to start using this information. The services have to be supplemented with demonstration of new technologies on farmers' own fields and through field trials. - Category: Agriculture
  • Cloned Animal Food Products and Consumer Behaviour ( 875 reads)   

    Issue of consumer acceptance of food technologies and their application needs to be addressed early in technology development process. However, whether extensive assessment of consumer acceptance is necessary for all food-related technologies a priori is uncertain. A review of studies of several food related technologies associated with different levels of public acceptance suggests that those characterized as being 'bioactive' raise particular concerns related to unpredictable effects, uncontrolled use, and ethical concerns. - Category: Biotech Research

  • Water Footprints for Future Sustainability of Dairy Farming ( 618 reads)   

    Consumption of animal product contributes more than one-quarter of water footprint of humanity as compared to wisely chosen food crop production. There is a need to reduce water foot print of animal feed and origin of feed ingredient. By this means sustainability of dairy farming can be maintained and it also help in increasing productivity. - Category: Agriculture
  • Economic Loss due to Zoonotic Disease in Humans and Dairy animals ( 1071 reads)   

    Zoonotic diseases are highly contagious leading to economic loss as well as life of human and dairy animals. In order to avoid these losses hygienic environment must be maintained in cattle shed, care should be taken during disposal of disease infected waste material, vaccinate animal in order to avoid infection of rabies, brucellosis etc. - Category: Healthcare
