Annual Plan



1. Intensification of Al for increasing the number of crossbred population:
Artificial insemination will be intensified through involvement of Govt. run stationary and mobile Al units and door step Al workers. During 2013-14, the total target of A.I. was 1.70 lakh which will be same in 2014-15. Institution wise target should be made by Tripura Livestock Development Agency (TLDA), in consultation with PO. ICDP-II, District level Dy. Directors and Block Level Asstt. Directors of ARD for achieving the block wise target.

2. Setting up of Credit linked dairy demonstration unit (2 CB Cows) @ Rs.1.00 Lakh:
The dairy units will be established under bank linked credit scheme and beneficiary will avail the back ended subsidy as prescribed under the scheme sponsored by NABARD. It is planned to induct 900-1000 CB cows every year which will bring about additional production of 1450 to 1500 MT of milk per year. To ensure targeted milk production, it is planned to set up more number of such farms in the state with the participation of interested farmers without any restriction. It is targeted to set up of 950 such unit during the financial year 2014-15. Dept. will provide the technical inputs like free training, medicine, vaccine etc.

Implementation modalities:
A). Applications for financial assistance from progressive farmers will be sponsored by the respective field veterinarians to the commercial banks under their jurisdiction through AD (BL)/Dy.Director.
B). Required Cross Breed/ pure Indian dairy breed milch cattle having 7 to 10 Its milk yield per day will preferably be procured from outside state sources and Dept. will extend all necessary technical guidance.

3. Supply of Calf Growth Meal @ 1020 kg/calf up to 28 month of age (@ Rs 34 /-per kg) at 50% support price:
Tripura is deficient in animal food grain production and malnutrition alone is the major contributing factor for mortality of calves. To maintain the new born calves up to the age of 28 months on higher plane of nutrition, concentrate mixture will be supplied to the farmers at 50% support price as per existing pattern/ modalities of ongoing scheme. It is planned to cover 5000 calves during 2014-15 with a financial involvement of Rs134.00 Lakh.

4. Fertility camps for improving conception rate:
There are about 2.89 lakh indigenous and 0.54 lakh crossbred (CB) breedable female cattle available in the state. It is observed that infertility is a major problem in indigenous population (20%) and in CB is around (30%). It implies that around 58,000 indigenous and 16,000 CB breedable female cattle are suffering from infertility problem leading to loss in milk production. Therefore, it has been decided to undertake fertility Management Camps and. Reproductive Health camps on a regular basis like previous years. It is planned, to organize 400 camps with the total financial involvement of Rs. 40.00 lakh during 2014-15 which is available with TLDA for implementation as per prevailing modalities.

5. Training of private Al Workers & provision of logistic support:
In order to ensure more coverage of cattle under breed up gradation/ cross breeding programme and to render Artificial Insemination( Al) service at the door-step of farmers, around 100 private Al
Workers will be trained and provided with logistic support. Fund will be available during 2014-15 for implementation as per modalities framed by TLDA under NPCBB.

6. Supply of breeding bulls (Indian dairy breed/cross bred) in ADC blocks for coverage through natural service:
As the tribals are less interested in A.I. and traditionally they leave the cattle in forest where cows get pregnant by stray bulls and subsequently less productive offspring are born, resulting less production of milk. So 20 breeding bulls will be supplied for natural service in those areas where A.I. facilities are yet to be extended. This intervention will be implemented by the TLDA, under NPCBB fund during 2014-15 with their existing modalities.

7. Mass de-worming programme and supply of mineral mixture:
It is well known that the cows will not become pregnant, if there is worm load and mineral deficiency. In the state of Tripura the monsoon is longer for almost six to seven months. During monsoon the cattle thrive on local grasses and pick up the eggs of worm. Therefore, if the cows and heifers are given de-worming medicine twice a year and regular supplementation of mineral mixture, it would help considerably in increasing the conception rate as well as milk production. It is proposed to cover all cows & heifers under de-worming programme for improving conception in cows/heifers. In total 1, 80,000 cattle will be covered during 2014-15. Implementation modalities:
This can be accomplished through the network of existing veterinary institutions in routine manner and health camps by ensuring timely procurement of the medicine (i.e. requisite quantum of de-wormer etc.)

8. Conducting Milk Yield competitions, Calf rally:
To take the advantage of crossbreeding programme, the Dept proposes to conduct Milk yield competitions and Calf Rally for the crossbred cows and calves to sensitize the reluctant farmers to adopt modern and scientific management of cattle. It is proposed to conduct 100 camps/ rally with the involvement of Rs.10.00 lakh during 2014-15 as per existing implementing modalities.

9. Organization of awareness camps:
To acquaint the farmers about scientific management of female calves, heifer and cows, Dept. has planned to conduct 1040 awareness camps in every Panchayet / village to educate the farmers on the management aspect of calves, heifer and cows. 1040 camps to be conducted during 2014-15 with the involvement of Rs.10.40 lakh as per existing modalities.


Setting up of Beneficiary oriented Pig Breeding unit for Patta Holders under FRA:
Govt. of Tripura has allotted forest land to Patta holders under Forest Right Act. The allotted are mostly forest land and undulating terrain where traditional agriculture practice is difficult. Livestock sector in Tripura plays a pivotal role in providing employment to rural population. Animal Husbandry therefore 'May be the best option for the livelihood of forest dwellers. Considering this, the department of Animal Resources Development has planned to extend benefit to 1200 nos forest dwellers for generating sustainable income through supply of one exotic male pig for breeding purpose to upgrade local deshi pig during 2014-15 with involvement of fund amounting Rs.66.00 lakh @ Rs 5500.00 per unit under state plan.


1. Establishment of Block Level Brooder House (BLBH):
35 nos BLBH will be established in the State under MGNREGA and in addition 5 nos of BLBH will be established in each Block of Sepahijala and West Tripura District under MGNREGA. Moreover 12 Nos of BLBH will be set up under RKVY.

2. Massive promotion of backyard poultry including FRA:
In order to augment egg & meat production by masses, supply of birds to the 5400 BPL families at free of cost will be made as per existing schematic pattern with special importance to Patta holders.
