Uttar Pradesh to have Abhinav Ambulance service for treatment of cows, soon
Uttar Pradesh Dairy Development, Animal Husbandry, and Fisheries Minister Laxmi N Chaudhary have confirmed that 515 ambulances are ready for the novel scheme to serve the injured cows across the state.
The ambulance service will be for those suffering from serious diseases and the initiative would also pave the way for the speedy treatment of critically ill cows.
Under the scheme which is scheduled to begin next month, a call center will be set up in Lucknow for receiving complaints.
An ambulance with a veterinary doctor and two assistants would arrive within a response time of 15 to 20 minutes.
The Minister also said the state’s breed improvement programme will get a boost with the provision of free high-quality semen and embryo transplant technology.
The embryo transplant technology will virtually be a revolution in the state as it would convert even sterile cows into high milk-yielding animals.
This would automatically solve the stray cattle problem as cow keepers would desist from letting go of animals that will be yielding at least 20 liters of milk per day.
Chaudhary said that the scheme will begin as a pilot project in eight districts of the state, including Mathura.
