Livestock farmer awarness

  1. 1. The NGO World 20-G, Shah Rukne Alam Colony Multan- Pakistan Email: thengoworld@yahoo.com web: www.thengoworld.org +92-61-6778562 Barkat Project Report on Awareness Campaign Barkat Project team organized a successful campaign of awareness for small livestock to adopt better practices of rearing animals and get maximum benefit from them. Main components of the campaign were conducting awareness sessions, livestock medical camps and Introduction of newly established Village Information Center (VIC) Better Livestock Farming
  2. 2. BETTER LIVESTOCK FARMING Barkat Project The NGO World Page 2 www.thengoworld.org INTRODUCTION Agriculture is the backbone and single largest sector of Pakistan’s economy as its contribution to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) exceeded 25.3 percent during 1997‐98. Crops, livestock, fishing and forestry sub‐sectors being its main components, only crop and livestock sub‐sectors are of critical importance. The livestock sub‐sector however has not followed suit. It has risen from 27.3 percent in 1969‐70 to 36.2 percent in 1997‐98. Apart from its contributions to national income, the livestock sub‐sector is an active employer of thousands of landless poor and subsistence and semi‐subsistence small farming families. Being a household activity, women are a special beneficiary of employment in the sub‐sector. It is a major source of nourishment like milk, butter oil, eggs and meat and adds immensely to the health, nutrition and well being of rural as well as urban people. While animal fat and butter oil supplies are helpful in containing vegetable oil imports, many products of livestock origin such as wool and wool products, leather and leather made‐ups and animal casings are exported and contribute significantly to hard earned foreign exchange [Ahmad, Ahmad and Chaudhry (1996)]. Livestock Farming is an integral part of rural smallholders and has a vast untapped potential for productivity increase and income generation. Livestock holdings by the small farmers constitute a significant portion of the farm incomes. Small farmers and landless livestock producers derive around 10–25 percent of their incomes from this sub‐sector. There have been and, largely, still are two primary purposes of raising livestock:  To meet the dietary needs of the rural and urban populace for milk and meat consumption; and  To fulfill the work performance requirements of the farm.  To generate hard cash and accomplish their immediate needs. Generally the small livestock farmers living in rural areas are illiterate and have limited access to sources of information for better Livestock Farming; ultimately they are getting very low against the effort they are making. To improve their farming practices Awareness Raising Campaigns has been designed as an essential part of Barkat Project (detail ahead).

  4. 4. BETTER LIVESTOCK FARMING Barkat Project The NGO World Page 4 www.thengoworld.org Goal/Objectives of Campaign: The primary objective of this awareness campaign was to teach farmers to adopt better Livestock Farming so that they may get more profit against their efforts of rearing animals at household level. Main points include;  To teach farmers about importance of their livestock in their income circle and livelihood  To teach them about possible solutions of the issues they daily face regarding health of animals  To aware them about the available technical facilities & services around them  To strengthen their connectivity with Barkat technical team to seek knowledge and avail services Ultimate goal of the campaign is aligned with the goal of Barkat Project “To increase their livestock production to enhance their income and ultimately to improve their living standard”
  5. 5. BETTER LIVESTOCK FARMING Barkat Project The NGO World Page 5 www.thengoworld.org Target community and Participation: Barkat Project has established its livestock partners (Barkat Partners) in three UCs of district Khanewal. Main focus of the campaign was to ensure participation of Barkat Partners in designed activities but other farming community living around was also encouraged to participate the activities and it was very much encouraging that many farmers who were not our partners showed interest and actively participated to get maximum benefit from the expert’s advice and services. Regarding participation our team was keen to attract those family members who were actually involved in their routine livestock related activities. We ensured the youth to participate the awareness sessions because we find it necessary to engage their future generation in this valuable aspect of their income generation & livelihood. We haven’t ignored even women participation because we know that women are also equal important stakeholders regarding Livestock Farming at house hold level. They are practically involved in daily task of feeding the animals and caring about their health.
