dc.description.abstractThe green fodder from the cactus pads having enough moisture and minerals to supplement water and nutrient to animals in hot summer months was very well accepted by livestock owners after seeing feed mix demonstrations in villages. The project has successfully overcome the initial apprehension by various stakeholders on the acceptance of cactus as alternate fodder by local livestock. All types of livestock, the cattle, goats, sheep, etc. find the feed mix very palatable, and their water intake is observed to be reduced. The livestock owners opine that the health and body lustre especially of goats has improved after taking cactus feed mix for few days. A long-term study on it would help to quantify the impacts on milk and meat yield and the health of animals. Feed-mix demonstrations have been conducted in presence of the officials from various departments like Project Director, Watershed, Training Officers from the office of Chief District Veterinary Officer, block-level veterinary surgeon, PRI members, etc. To chop cactus pads, green leaves, and straw, 150 chaff cutters have been distributed and trainings imparted on its operation and maintenance.en_US
