UID tagging will be done in 12 districts of the state along with improving the breed of milch animals. For this, the Animal Husbandry Department has identified 100 villages in each district. By March 2020, two animals from a village are targeted for artificial insemination and tagging.
After tagging, registration will be done on the National Dairy Development Board app. With this, the owner will also know when the animals are left unclaimed. At the same time, the record of vaccination of animals will also be made online. The Center has started the National Artificial Insemination Scheme for animal breeding to promote animal husbandry systems.
As a first pilot project, the scheme was launched in Udham Singh Nagar and Haridwar district. Now, except for Udham Singh Nagar, this six-month scheme has been implemented in all 12 districts. In which UID tagging will be done after artificial insemination of milch animal. In which a 12-digit tag will be placed on the animal. Tagging will register the animal online.
With this, the records of treatment of animals will be available with the department. If a farmer leaves the animal unclaimed, tagging will identify the owner. Director Animal Husbandry Dr. KK Joshi says that 100 villages in each district have been identified in the scheme.
A target has been set to perform artificial insemination of 200 animals from every village. This will increase milk production in the state and improve the cattle breed. Also, UID tagging will also remove the problem of unclaimed animals.
