Following is from a report in farminguk.com.

The large poultry farm meant for research and promotion of poultry farming in south Orissa had been closed down due to management problems. It was revived and modernised with Central aid. It would serve as a major breeding farm in south Orissa. The chicks produced in this poultry farm would be sold to poultry farmers of Ganjam, Gajapati, Kandhamal and Nayagarh districts.

The Regional Poultry Farm is ready to start its sale of newly-hatched chicks from 29 April. … The farm has decided to specialize in breeding ’Banraj’ breed of poultry. The head of the farm, G.Naresh Kumar informed that at present the animal husbandry department is promoting this breed among rural poultry farmers.

The Banraj breed is being promoted to cash on the market of organic chickens of traditional breeds, which are still grown in large numbers in rural areas in an unorganised manner. The traditional breeds are slow growing yet they have a good market and fetch good price in market. It may be noted that similar poultry farms of the State government at Chiplima, Angul, Cuttack, Bhubaneswar, Sundergarh, Bolangir, Semiliguda and Koraput are also being modernised to meet the increasing need of poultry products in Orissa.

The Government of India has a Department of Animal Husbandry and Diarying under its ministry of Agriculture. That Department has the following sub-ordinating offices, of which three are in Orissa. Orissa should try to get a Fisheries division office.

Boost in Poultry farming in Orissa

Telegraph reports that the Orissa government under the able guidance of the Veternary director Bishnupada Sethi has introduced several schemes for the growth of poultry farming. Following are some snippets from that article.

… Value added tax (VAT) charged on maize and broken rice used for preparation of poultry feed would be reimbursed by the finance department. Similarly, the cooperation department has been asked to waive a per cent of the market tax levied on eggs, chicks and birds, brought to the regulated market committee yards,” said the Orissa veterinary director, Bishnupada Sethi, while talking to The Telegraph today.

Insurance premium for each poultry farm has, in the meanwhile, been revised from Rs 4 per layer bird to a meagre 30 paisa, the veterinary director added. Also, the Orissa electricity regulatory commission has been asked to reduce the tariff for poultry.

… The state’s production has increased from 12 lakh per day in 2005-06 to 32 lakh during 2006-07.

But still there seems to be a lacuna as the state’s present demand stands at 64 lakh eggs per day.”

Samaja reports that the government will help establish one chicken hatchery in each district and its aim will be to produce 1 crore eggs per day.
