Main objective of the Livestock and Dairy Development Department(Extension), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, is to alleviate poverty by improving the socio-economic condition of farmers through enhancing the productivity of their livestock in terms of milk, meat and other livestock products/byproducts
Livestock contribute to the livelihood of rural poor by providing a small but steady stream of food and income, improving farm productivity, increasing assets and mitigating risks.
The livestock sector of our province has great potential of making contribution to poverty alleviation but this potential is still untapped. The major constraint in making meaningful efforts for enhancing per animal productivity are the farmer’s shyness to adopt improved farm practices and the investors’ reluctance to invest in the sector; both mainly lack of access to the required information.
Keeping in view the above, the Livestock and Dairy Development Department (Extension) has established Information Cell in the provincial headquarters of the department for efficient dissemination of the needed information to all stakeholders. Launching of the official website of the department is one of the mandates of the cell, which the team has achieved successfully. I congratulate them on accomplishing the task in efficient manner. It is hoped that the information once put on the website shall contribute in bringing about desirable changes in the knowledge , attitude and skills of the livestock stakeholders across the board, and the site will be a rich source of information for the livestock owners, livestock service providers, input suppliers and policy makers.
