Arunachal Pradesh cabinet minister Tage Taki has urged the centre to set up modern animal disease diagnostic center in the North East to detect exotic animal diseases at the early stage and prevent loss of animals.
In the face of African Swine Fever disease that killed thousands of pigs in the region, he said the existing facilities do not cater to the emerging needs of the region.
Taki was addressing the valedictory function of the North East Livestock-Aqua-Poulty Expo 2023 held in Maniram Dewan Trade center, Guwahati on April 20.
While dwelling on the huge potential of piggery, poultry and fisheries in the North Eastern Region, he said we have to educate the farmers of the region in breed selection, adoption of new technologies and going for commercial production.
The focus areas of the expo were livestock, aquaculture and fisheries, poultry, dairy farming and processing and its scope in the North Eastern states. The expo also showcased latest technologies and innovations in animal breeding and reproduction, feed production, aquaculture, dairy and poultry developments and value addition.
