Abstract:

The nationwide imposition of lockdown due to Covid-19 adversely affected various agriculture allied occupations especially livestock and poultry sector. For dairy farmers reduced price of milk, lack of transportation means and lack of veterinary aids were major problems faced during the lockdown. Poultry farmers incurred massive losses due to rumours associated with chicken which caused collapse in demand for poultry products. Top ranked problems faced by poultry farmers include reduced availability of improved breeds, price and sale of egg or meat. Selling prices of pigs were decreased due to lower demand from slaughterhouses caused by labour shortages and lack of transportation means. Some remedy measures were formulated by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bathinda which helped entrepreneurs to reduce economic losses. It is concluded that the lockdown imposed a negative impact on the economic status of farmers associated with livestock and poultry sector by reducing their income drastically.
