Pakistan poultry industry seeks disease assistance
Farmers lack skills, infrastructure to keep poultry healthy
The Pakistan Poultry Association has asked the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences to conduct research on poultry diseases, such as Newcastle disease, avian influenza and infectious bursal disease, in an attempt to educate the country's farmers.
According to the PPA, Pakistan's poultry farmers lack poultry management skills and proper henhouse infrastructures. Dr. Munir Ahmad Sahi, a member of the PPA, asked the UVAS to conduct refresher poultry courses and training workshops to promote good management practices and technical support to the industry.
