Kargil: Six animal health camps were organized by KVK Kargil-II (Zanskar) in collaboration with Animal Husbandry Department Zanskar at Sani, Ufti of Padum constituency, Surly of Cha Constituency and Rangdum, Parkachy of Parkachy constituency.
The camps were aimed to gain understanding of the general livestock health status, management practices and prevalent diseases/problems in the area, so that livestock-related intervention could be taken up systematically.

The joint efforts of the KVK Scientist Dr Shabber Hussain and Livestock Department Officer Dr Asgar Din ensured that all sick and poor animals get free check-ups and consultations.
About 300 farmers were present during the five-day camp. They were educated on different topics like good livestock management practice, clean milk production as well as various farmer-oriented schemes of Animal Husbandry Department.
