Dr Kalam said, ‘livestock rearing in our country is quite different for subsistence farmers, where risk management is more important than the developed market driven systems. Apart from climatic conditions, we have problem of large human and animal population, pressure on land, scarcity of pastureland, shortage of feed and fodder, resulting in comparatively low productivity and consequently the low economic returns.’

Former President of India, while appreciating the contribution of Indian poultry industries, said that poultry farming in India has transformed from a mere tool of supplementary income and nutritious food for the family to major commercial activity generating the required revenue.

He also mentioned, ‘the Indian poultry production is considered the cheapest in the world. About 3 million farmers and 15 million agrarian farmers are employed in the poultry industry that grow poultry ingredients for feed and contribute about Rs 26000 crore to the national income. India was positioned 17th in the world poultry production.

He expressed his concern for the shortage of quality feeds and suggested, for increasing the supply of green herbage, conservation of degraded pasture lands and development of wastelands strategies are needed, he further added, feeding strategies for ruminants in tropics should also include environmental protection, through reduced methane emission, apart from increasing the productivity of ruminants stock.
