Farmers from seven neighbouring villages brought their animals to the veterinary camp. Apart from providing consultation, treatment of diseased animals, vaccination and de-worming was done. Besides this, castration of underproductive goats was also done at the camp. Commonly, complaints of worm infestation, anemia, malnutrition, agalactia and ticks infestation were also treated.
"This is the first time my cow received vaccination. I also got medicines for free. This will help prevent diseases and keep my cow healthy," said Sundari Devi, a resident of Nagwa village.
The economy of the families here depends significantly upon the good health of their livestock and the growth of their herds. A team of 10, including two government veterinary doctors under the leadership of Deputy Director, Animal Husbandry Department, Government of MP, Singrauli treated and vaccinated close to 500 domestic animals at the camp.
Dr UP Singh, Deputy Director, Department of Animal Husbandry, Singrauli, said, "The population of cattle in this area is quite sizeable and their health requires attention. I'm glad that villagers have benefited greatly from this camp. We would be happy to extend support to Essar regularly for such initiatives."
