Ludhiana, August 20, 2019 (Akash Sharma): Monsoon season is prone for natural calamities such as heavy rainfall and disasters like floods. Floods and excessive humidity increases the chance of snake bites, so weed and grass nearby the shed should be cut. In flood like situations, keep in mind the area where animals are to be shifted. Calves or small animals need special care. The poor conditioned old/temporary/sheds should be avoided to house the animals in this season. The information was shared by Dr. D S Malik, HoD Livestock Production and Management of Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Ludhiana. The chances of stray voltage during rainy season in animal sheds are common. The most common signs of exposure to stray voltage may be – restlessness and decreased feed water intake. Check the roofs and surroundings for seepage of rain water in the shed. Keep floor of the shed dry and clean to prevent skin diseases and environmental Mastitis.
