Cattle shed lacks proper facilities in Kadur taluk

The farmers are facing problem as there are no proper toilet facilities in the government Goshala (cattle shed) at Panchanahalli in Kadur taluk.

The cattle shed on the premises of the Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) accommodates 6,000 cattle. Hundreds of farmers, who come to the shed to obtain cattle feed, answering nature calls at an open ground. Even though there are toilets on the APMC premises, they are not fit for use and the farmers have been relying on the fields nearby.

Farmer Ningappa said the district administration has not maintained good toilets. Another farmer Manjunath expressed concern that there are high chances of spreading of infectious diseases as the farmers have been urinating and defecating in the open.

In the cattle shed, dry grass of five kg and 2.5 kg will be provided to each cow and calf respectively. Also, 12 kg and six kg green grass are supplied to cows and calves. Water tanks too have been facilitated. Cattle feed is stored in four godowns. The feed is distributed to farmers through token system. A total of 3,200 quintal feed is supplied per day. Sixteen members of Art of Living Vyakti Vikasa Kendra have been voluntarily working at the shed.

Veterinary department deputy director Dr Prabhulingu said the veterinary doctors examine the cattle for diseases. Farmer Chandrappa urge the authorities to make meal arrangement for the farmers who are halting at the cattle shed.
