Ludhiana, May 14
The Punjab Government has sanctioned a project to the tune of Rs 1.07 crore to Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU) to set up a model gaushala on the campus.
Dr Inderjeet Singh, Vice Chancellor, GADVASU, Ludhiana, said the gaushala would demonstrate the actual potential of stray cattle (a national resource) that could be harnessed in the form of income generation and genetic improvement of germplasm etc.
Nearly 1.6 lakh stray cattle roaming on the roads of Punjab are one of the major reasons for road accidents, damage to crops and forest plantations. The project will be launched to manage the stray cattle menace.
