Livestock daytime staying and feeding place

ECCA constructed cemented livestock daytime staying and feeding place in 26 households in Dalchoki village, Lalitpur district. Livestock is a major income generation activity in this region. During April 2015 earthquake, along with the houses, animal sheds also got damaged. As a result, local people faced difficulty in raising their livestock. The construction support was provided to help the community in their economy.

The construction comprised of a cemented floor (where animals are kept during the day time) which has slight slope, drain and chamber for urine collection (urine is used in the farming as pesticide). On one side of the cemented floor, animal feeding place has been made. The construction is simple yet provides solutions to multiple problems of people. “Especially during monsoon season, the uncemented floor gets so muddy that the animals have a hard time staying. We had to keep adding soil to make it more even and dry. Fodder would often get mixed with soil and stones”, shares Bhagwati, one of the beneficiaries. According to her, the construction has now solved that problem. It has also provided an aid to livestock hygiene and the fodder of livestock is also secured.

Besides these advantages, another villager Krishna also talks about the increment he has witnessed in milk production, “I used to get 30 litres of milk on a daily basis from my 6 buffaloes. Now, the production has increased by almost 6 litres" (crediting to 1 litre increment per buffalo). Income of Krishna has increased; other households have also been benefited. The construction of livestock daytime staying and feeding place has certainly supported the economy of the local people of Dalchoki. We are thankful to you for helping us support them.
