A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying and Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India was signed on Wednesday (7 April) to introduce the concept of Ayurveda and its allied disciplines into veterinary science.
The MoU promotes research and development including research on new formulations in quality drugs for veterinary science through medicinal herbs.
This cooperation helps to develop a regulatory mechanism for the use of Ayurveda in the veterinary sector for the benefit of animal health, livestock owners’ community and the society at large, the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying said in a statement.
The initiative involves capacity building in related areas through training, exploring marketing possibilities for herbal veterinary medicines on a sustainable basis and providing for services including cultivation, preservation and conservation of medicinal plants.
The cooperation will help in developing herbal veterinary education programs and creating awareness among dairy farmers and agro-farmers about utilization and importance of herbal veterinary medicine and cultivation of medicinal herbs.
