Poultry Farming- a livelihood option

No comments :


Poultry farming has become a viable livelihood option for the villages of Kanchanpura in Bharatpur district of Rajasthan state of India. A public service institution Lupin Human Welfare and Research Foundation identified poultry farming as a most profitable livelihood option for the villages about 5 years back.

The work was started initially by half-a-dozen young men who went to Ajmer to learn technique of poultry farming. Increasing cost of agriculture had led the youth of the area to neglect farming and to opt for daily wage jobs.
It is important to note that Lupin Foundation has been working for the development of Bharatpur district for several decades. It functions as a social responsibility wing of Lupin, a pharmaceutical company.

Key Words :poultry, youth,farming
