Measures are being taken to set up an Animal Husbandry Training Centre in the Jaffna District.
This is being launched under the Livestock Development Programme. Deputy Minister H.R. Mithrapala during his Jaffna tour said arrangements are underway to set up an Animal Breeding Centre as well.
The Officials informed the Minister that the number of Veterinary doctors available in the Jaffna District is not adequate.
The Deputy Minister said that those who have followed veterinary science courses in the universities will be recruited as veterinary doctors to solve this problem.
