Abstract:

Livestock sector alone contributes nearly 25.8% of value of output at current prices and total value of output in agriculture, fishing and forestry sector. Livestock sector contributes 4.11% GDP and 25.6% of total Agriculture GDP. The annual contribution of livestock sector in total GDP is nearly 4.5% at current prices during 2015-16 (Anonymous, 2020). Current problems faced by livestock sector especially in a market centric economy can be better contextualized by taking a look at historical scenario. Understanding traditional basis of livestock enterprise in J&K will help to evolve a counter perspective to current models that largely go unchallenged. The paper attempts to briefly document history of livestock enterprise in J&K in order to show how much we have forgotten while pursuing current model of development. It attempts to also highlight difficulties faced by farmers associated with livestock sector in traditional set up and thus help us analyze current scenario. It presents facts and arguments to substantiate deep link between livestock and our agroclimatic structure and thus help to argue for reorienting our contemporary economy in their light.
